More community participation

I would suggest that an attempt be made to integrate some more "community" features to the meeting rather than just have set panels and speakers. Two possible ways in which this could be achieved would be by: 1)Having one part of the conference (or possibly one day before the conference) set aside for a bar-camp style conference where the participants help set the agenda on-site. This worked well, in my opinion, in the ...more »

case studies with a focus on how-to

Agencies with specific success stories sharing briefly what they did & more in-depth on how they were able to address possible areas of concern: privacy, security, accessibility, records management, endorsement, etc. (whatever was applicable in their case) I think a lot of us get the tools and strategies (we're already sold on their value). What would be really helpful is more practical guidance on how to go through ...more »

Federal Agreement with Web 2.0 Providers

The federal govt's agreements with Web 2.0 providers such as Google, Flikr--how was it hammered out? What were obstacles along the way, if any? Can state and local governments imitate this with the same providers? Should we all be working together so that the providers can negotiate just one agreement?

Social Media Lab

How about adding a more hands on component to the meeting. I think the recent model by CDC with their Social Media Lab at the CDC HIV Prevention Conference (see Aids.gov blog | http://blog.aids.gov/2009/08/experimenting-in-the-social-media-lab-at-the-cdc-hiv-prevention-conference.html) holds great potential. I think this would get considerable interest from people looking to learn more about these tools and, perhaps ...more »

Great social media tools

I'd like to see more emphasis on practical ways agencies can use social media. What are some other great tools besides Facebook and Twitter that we can use and are there some best practices that go hand in hand with those other tools?

"How To" topics

Many of us who are advancing the cause of Web 2.0 in Govt are NOT techies. We need the specific HOW TO info, so that once we get the go-ahead, we can speak knowledgeably and give some guidance to IT on what we need. How to set up a wiki (step by step), or podcast, or webinar. How to use the (open source)software, what equipment (if any) is needed -- these kinds of topic would be helpful to non-techies.

Suggested Venue

Attended the EA 2009 Conference last week at a great venue - see http://events.fcw.com/EventOverview.aspx?Event=EA09. Right off Federal Triangle Metro, excellent Food Court, close to tourist attractions, etc.

Web site templates discussion

We should use this venue to make a reality out of the idea of providing pre-design website templates (both graphics and code) and encouraging govt web sites to use them. This is currently a project being run out of the web content managers council, and this would be the perfect place to advance it.

How much content is too much content?

Is it really worth the time to prep, post and then maintain documents and pages that receive barely a handful of page views or clicks per month? At what point should content such as this be removed or just never added in the first place? Does this overload of content dilute the user experience? Confuse the user? Are fewer choices better?
