Gov 2.0 L.A. 2013 is upon us shortly.
Gov 2.0 LA started as a way to bring people who are not usually together in the same room to be able to openly discuss both Government 2.0 and the technology around it as well as form long standing interpersonal relationships.
The 2010, 2011, 2012 events did all that and more. The Twitter hashtag #gov20la that was primarily used for the event has been in continuous year around use with discussions and links about Government 2.0 and gov tech. Very few live events see their hashtags be used for more than a month after the event. There was tremendous innovation and ideas that carried forward into 2010 through the manifestation of many other events as well as actual opengov and gov 2.0 success stories. It was amazing - all these amazing people came together in a place they had never heard of just to take their industry further.
CONFIRMED SPEAKER LIST FOR 2013:
Silberberg Innovations Official Gov 2.0 LA Page:
We are past the point where the “Gov 2.0” in our name does more than evoke recognition. It is time to focus not on the theoretical but on the practical and how that is working or not. This past year the world has witnessed upheaval and change on a scale that is new to all of us. When we did Gov20LA 2011 - Tunisia had just fallen, and the crisis in Egypt was just erupting in full; we had a collection of the some of the world’s leading thinkers about guess what: social media in times of crisis and governments. It was to be sure pretty amazing timing.
This year we don’t expect any world revolutions while holding the event again, but who knows?
We do know that the speaker lineup is getting better everyday.
The three themes of this upcoming Gov20LA are going to be:
1. Government 2.0 is actually here. Has been now for a while. We might almost be getting to Government 3.0.
2. How digital diplomacy is changing the face of nations and how they talk to each other. What this means for the rest of us.
3. Emergency services are deploying more and more online and it has been providing tremendous advantages in times of crisis like Hurricane Sandy.
