10 bloggers on the government IT beat

The convergence of government, business, people and technology covers a territory at least the size of the Beltway. A small army of bloggers helps focus and enrich the discussion with contributions to news gathering and trend spotting. Take a look at some of our favorite government IT bloggers mentioned in this year's Federal List:

1. TechPresident -- The blog began as a way to cover how the candidates used the Web during the 2008 presidential campaign and now looks at how the Obama administration continues using it and how people are responding.

2. DorobekInsider -- Federal Computer Week’s former editor-in-chief continues his extensive and exhaustive probing of federal government IT and the people involved with it – and then some!

3. Input -- The market research company's blog takes a broad look at government IT procurements, the implications that has for agencies' use of technology and the ramifications for government contractors.

4. Municipalist -- The blog is an expansive collection of posts about government’s use of Web 2.0 at the federal, state and local levels, and it is worth a look for the contacts and projects lists alone.

5. MuniGov2.0 -- The site is an outside-the-Beltway take on how Web 2.0 can help government become more open and collaborate better with the public.

6. Free Government Information -- Explore the ups and downs of access to government information. The site also offers insights about how IT and the Web influence access.

7. The Health Care Blog -- Health IT is a big part of health reform proposals, and as part of its larger health care coverage, this blog outlines just how technology fits into the whole package.

8. Sunlight Foundation -- The foundation highlights how IT can help improve access to government information in the pursuit of greater openness and accountability.

9. Generation Shift -- The blog looks at how social media is paving the way for the next generation of government employees to collaborate with one another and other organizations.

10. Transformation in the Federal Sector -- Check out observations about the use of IT as it relates to open government, including details about nitty-gritty technology issues such as enterprise architecture.
