Call put out for Gov 2.0 showcase

The Federal Government has put a call out for case studies on the use of web 2.0 technologies in the government space with a view to setting up a gallery to help the edification of others.

The call was made on the Finance department's Australian Government Information Management Office (AGIMO) new blog, which was established as part of the response to the Government 2.0 Taskforce’s recommendations.

Some of the early entries to the gallery will also be used by Senator Kate Lundy in her presentation to the upcoming International Gov 2.0 Expo in Washington, which also includes presentations by O'Reilly Media’s Tim O'Reilly and World Wide Web Consortium’s Tim Berners-Lee.

The blog post calls for those interested to make a screencast (a video of what is happening on your screen) or take screen grabs for the submission.

The case study call comes a couple of days after the Federal Government released its first ever Budget with a Creative Commons licence, which was another recommendation of the Gov 2.0 Taskforce.
