As many of you will already know, FutureGov is somewhat USA curious…
Two weeks ago now (wow how time flies!) I was lucky enough to spend a few days in Washington DC at the eDemocracy camp and the Politics Online Conference. Hosted and organised by the Institute for Politics, Democracy and the Internet (IPDI), I headed to the events eager to see how things had changed since my trip over last year given Obama’s intervening election. And they were again an honour to be part of, with the mood clearly having changed from excitement about all the possibilities ahead to enthusiasm for the reality of delivering the open government directive.
This weekend I’ll be flying to Washington DC to attend the Politics Online Conference. The line-up for the two day event looks fantastic! I’m especially happy to be there to support the screening of Us Now, which is a UK film about mass participation and collaboration directed by Ivo Gromley.
Having enjoyed co-hosting the Public Services 2.0 event over in Brussels last week with David Osimo and Lee Bryant (video of the event now available), this week Justin and I will be heading out to Washington DC to reprezent for the UK GovWeb scene at Government 2.0 Camp, a 500 (yes 500) strong BarCamp event for US GovWeb geeks and policy wonks.
Things are rather hectic on the events front for FutureGov at the moment, so as much for our benefit as yours here’s where you’ll be able to find us during March. If anything particularly grabs you and you’d like more information or to get involved even, leave a comment below or drop us a line – we’d love to hear from you.
