Gov 2.0 Summit, a new government technology conference co-produced by O'Reilly Media and TechWeb, capitalizes on the momentum for change and broad engagement, creating a non-partisan forum for addressing the monumental challenges our nation faces by applying the Web 2.0 principles of user engagement, rapid development, and real-time intelligence. Gov 2.0 Summit will bring together influential stake-holders in government, industry, non-profits, and academia to make government more transparent and accountable, reinvent the contracting ecosystem, and feature best practices and case studies to demonstrate how tasks can be accomplished more effectively and cheaply.
