For three days last week, I attended the Gov2.0 Expo Showcase and Gov2.0 Summit, liveblogging the entire thing here and cross posting to Twitter. Between Tuesday and Thursday, I posted nine entries and 550 updates. After the conference, I dumped the entries and updates into one document, amounting to 66 printed pages and 19,815 words, plus another page of notes from the event's press conference and two video interviews with Tim O'Reilly and Santa Cruz's Peter Koht.
This was, in effect, just my usual notes, except more thorough and done entirely in public. Doing ...

We're in the final stretch now. I'm coming late to the afternoon session following a press meetup with some of the conference organizers and key speakers. I'll have more to post on that talk soon, but for now, here's the last bit of Gov2.0 liveblogging.

It's the last day of the Gov2.0 Summit, and I'm back for another stretch of liveblogging. Today, we'll hear from Carl Malamud, Vivek Kundra and Ellen Miller of the Sunlight Foundation early on. I'm expecting another fascinating day of talks.

I came late to the after-lunch session (eating too slow), so this is a bit of catch up. The afternoon session goes more into the nuts and bolts of turning government as a platform. I'll have more ongoing updates throughout the rest of the day, here and on Twitter.

Following up on yesterday's series of posts from the Gov2.0 Expo, I'm attending the Gov2.0 Summit today, which promises to go deeper and be bolder.
I'll be liveblogging again

The last set of talks today looks at Government as Partner, which I expect will bring together much of what we've heard throughout the day, and talk about how all the constituencies involved in this effort move forward.
The presentations in the Government as a PARTNER category showcase new partnerships forged with government that involve emerging technologies. Here both sides have a strong interest in creating the best outcome possible.

"Give peace a chance," says Steve Ressler, introducing our next session.
The Government as a PEACEKEEPER category shows off how people are using emerging technology as a tool to make the world a better place. From humanitarian efforts overseas to influencing the world through public diplomacy, these entries demonstrate a new way of working.
Talks here focus on crime, safety and related efforts.

We're just getting back from lunch here, with the next panel about to start, looking at Government as a Protetor. "Government protects people, and the collaboration and teamwork needed to do this effectively dovetail naturally with Government 2.0 technologies," as the program description explains.
This series of talks includes the military, US Coast Guard, local police and the FDA.
As before, I'll be liveblogging below and on Twitter.

We're entering the next phase of Gov2.0. After the flood of updates during the first session, I've decided to break each cluster of lightning talks and follow-up panel into their own posts. LiveBlog updates below, or follow @eyeseast on Twitter.

I'm at O'Reilly's Government 2.0 Expo today. For three days this week, tech types are in Washington trying to figure out how (or if) they can make the government work better. I'll be attending all three events, starting with the Expo today, then two days of summit tomorrow and Thursday. Here's how Tim O'Reilly explains the event and the movement behind it:
Government 2.0 is about bringing the principles and value of the web as a platform to the business of governing. Lots of people are talking about it. Who's doing ...
