Gab with government via GSA's new blog

The General Services Administration’s newest Web log, GovGab, features daily postings from five federal managers, the agency announced.

The blog, featuring informal exchanges, is the latest addition to an increasingly crowded federal blogosphere. USA.gov, GSA’s home page, also features links to blogs by top managers, such as Homeland Security Department Secretary Michael Chertoff, Peace Corps volunteers and foreign-service officers via the State Department’s new Dipnote blog.

GSA’s Office of Citizen Services and Communications runs GovGab.

”The creation of GovGab is another step forward in improving public access to government information and services,” GSA Administrator Lurita Doan said in the announcement about the blog. “This blog will be an invaluable resource in helping us keep citizens informed of the many opportunities and programs offered by the U.S. government.”
