In addition to the people listed above, we will also be joined by Jeffrey Levy, director of Web communications inEPA’s Office of Public Affairs.

In brief, my general take on the Government 2.0 Camp…
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend all of both days, but… the time I was there was very valuable. The un-conference idea was just fascinating — and works with this group of people who are collaborators collaborating about collaboration. These are people who are inclined to participate — and are passionate. And I’m not sure if I’ve ever been in a room and seen so many laptops.
One of the most fascinating parts of the session was right at the start of both days when everybody introduced themselves. Each person had to either offer up a session — or they had to offer three words about why they were there. (Mine where: Just do it!) It was so interesting to see the eclectic mix of people — and ideas.
