A renaissance of US government Web apps

July 27th, 2010 · No Comments · Government 2.0, USA, Web 2.0

Wyatt Kash argues on Government Computer News that while it’s easy to snipe about how basic some of these US Federal Government approches to Web 2.0  might be, the important point is the renaissance that is taking place on federal Web sites. In many cases, federal Web sites are finding innovative ways to serve the public that complement, if not rival, what’s taking place in the private sector.
In this Article Kash outlines 10 such sites which he feels are god examples of such innovation:
Project: 2010 Earthquake in Haiti
Project: Apps for Healthy Kids
Project: Puget Sound and watershed management wiki
Project: Global Pulse 2010
Project: Library of Congress photostream
Project: Pillbox
Project: OpenGov Tracker
Project: Summer Travel Widget
Project: TV Converter Coupon Box Program
