Wow. Totally amazing weekend. Thank you to all of the Sponsors of Gov20LA. Thank you to all the amazing speakers and panelists and citizens. You made this event so special. Thank you to all the people around the United States, England, Canada, Israel, France, Mexico, Germany, Switzerland and many other countries who participated in the camp through the live videostream.
One of the key themes in this past weekend’s event was “Video is the New Text. ” Another is that the jargon and Language used in Government 2.0 “Gov 2.0” is holding us back. A third was the focus needs to be on People. Not Technology. Not Platforms. Not Data. But real (IRL) :-) People. The ones who agree, and the ones who disagree.
There was a lot of energy, and many comments to me were made about how smart everyone in the room was. Another take away was that most people came up to me and told me they were meeting people in the Government 2.0 “Gov 2.0″ space who they had never met before.
Brevity is key.
