The explicit purpose of the Open Government Directive (OGD) is to improve citizen interaction and engagement. Realizing the intentions behind the Directive will require significant web site innovation for many departments and agencies. Join us for this comprehensive workshop that showcases how and why Open Source content management tools such as Drupal are being quickly adopted across U.S. federal, state and local governments to meet rapidly expanding requirements and expectations of Open Government. Also, learn "how to" get started with Drupal, and how to achieve a fast track to success for implementing Open Government Directive requirements such as establishing an Open Government portal located at http://www.[agency].gov/open to serve as the gateway for agency activities related to the Open Government Directive including FOIA disclosures, open data initiatives, and citizen collaboration efforts around your agency's published open government plan.
I know a couple of the speakers and they have a real insight into technology and ways to make the government more open. If you are in the area and want to check it out then you can register here.
