Punk Rock Gov 2.0 Radio

I’m a big fan of Gov 2.0 Radio.

What I appreciate most is host Adriel Hampton‘s iterative approach to improving it. Each episode is a subtle experiment in something new. It’s not pretentious, over-produced or trendy chatter. It’s quality niche content and every episode is a solid course on what’s happening in the Gov 2.0, open government movement. Adriel and his co-hosts, Steve Lunceford and Steve Ressler, do a great job of connecting listeners to leaders and create a true sense of community.

Gov 2.0 Hero: Adriel Hampton

Private investigator, new media strategist, founder, co-host & co-producer of Government 2.0 Radio and Gov 2.0 Hero Adriel Hampton.

What was your path to Gov 2.0?

It really was seeing how the Barack Obama campaign was using low-cost communications to allow folks from all over the nation to get involved with the campaign right from their home computers. That woke up the journalist and activist in me, and I started looking around what was going on in the tech activism space. I was also doing a lot of networking on LinkedIn, and started tinkering around a bit with the Government 2.0 group there. Then, in the summer, Steve Ressler posted on LinkedIn asking folks to check out GovLoop. I joined when Steve’s site was just shy of 1,000 people, and found it extremely valuable in terms of networking around tech-enabled government reform. I also learned a lot about Web 2.0 working with activist Jon Pincus to oppose the first big bank bailout, and I learned that there were all these great applications out there that can be used to make government more democratic, on the cheap.
