Letter: Government blogs are a good first step

Regarding "Government enters the blogosphere": Great overview of what's happening with blogs and [the] federal government. You've touched on many pertinent aspects of using blogs. We had a panel on Web 2.0 at the recent FOSE conference but really did not have enough time, etc. to do more than touch on use of Web 2.0 applications. But I did post a PowerPoint on Slideshare.net. Just do a quick search on "FOSE" and the presentation should pop up. Web 2.0 applications present so many more possibilities than "just" blogging. But starting with blogging is a good first "toe in the water" to test what's possible.
