Opening Welcome
When the static Web 1.0 evolved to a malleable read/write version, it was dubbed a Web 2.0 platform. As there, so here. Web 2.0 has shown that transparency, participation, collaboration add up to increased efficiency. Gov 2.0 harnesses this for the public good. The power of less is the power of creative destruction. It’s the power to change the world.
8:45am-9:15am (30m)
Keynote
Tim O'Reilly (O'Reilly Media, Inc.)
The World Wide Web created remarkable new business models. As the Web undermined old media and software firms, it demonstrated the enormous power of a new model, Web 2.0. Now, many government leaders recognize the opportunities in harnessing a highly motivated and diverse population not just to help them get elected, but to help them do a better job. By analogy, many call this movement Gov 2.0.
