FCW Insider: Ask YOUR questions about Government 2.0 and the Collaboration Project


So I end up talking a lot about government 2.0 and collaboration here. It's no shock that the concept just fascinates me, in large part because I think there is so much potential and possibility.

So we are going to have an opportunity to ask your questions about collaboration, about Government 2.0, and about the National Academy of Public Administration's Collaboration Project. Next week,FCW.com will be presenting one of our eSeminars on government 2.0 and collaboration on Thursday, Aug. 21 at 2p ET. You can get more information at www.fcw.com/eseminars or just register here.

I will be moderating the eSeminar, which will feature Frank DiGiammarino, vice president of strategic initiatives at NAPA, and Lena Trudeau, program area director of strategic initiatives at NAPA. DiGiammarino and Trudeau graced Federal Computer Week's cover earlier this year -- we called them "the collaborators." It was part of a package on collaboration. DiGiammarinaoand Trudeau are spearheading NAPA's wonderful Collaboration Project, which looks to help agencies adopt this government 2.0 technologies in a safe way. They are providing some lessons learned that can let agencies mitigate some of the risks associated with trying new ways of doing business. (I first saw Virtual Alabama at a meeting of The Collaboration Project.)

Earlier this year, we also had DiGiammarino and Trudeau on our FCW-Federal News Radio show.

So if you have questions -- or even want to know what it is all about, join us. Bring your questions and concerns. Both DiGiammarina and Trudeau are very smart.

Again, you can find more information at www.fcw.com/eseminars.
