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.
Here’s what open government and Gov 2.0 leaders are saying about the new White House Open Government Directive.
A new book, State of the eUnion: Government 2.0 and Onwards, is now available free for download. The book, a compilation of essays from 34 Gov 2.0 thought leaders, will soon be available in print through Amazon and elsewhere.

Each week, hosts Adriel Hampton, GovLoop founder Steve Ressler and GovTwit founder Steve Lunceford review the latest Gov 2.0 news and talk with in-the-trenches Gov 2.0 leaders. For someone who isnâ€™t a govie and is 3,000 miles from Washington, DC, their in-depth discussions provide valuable insight into the inner workings of government innovations, from local to federal.
It was a big week for Gov 2.0 Radio co-host Steve Ressler, as his social network, GovLoop, joined G2C communications provider GovDelivery and Steve left the feds to manage the community full time. As GovLoop nears 20,000 members, we discuss how real collaboration between local, state and federal govies is catalyzing reform. Hear about new developments and initiatives on the network thatâ€™s helping make Gov 2.0 a reality. Joining the discussion will be Scott Burns of GovDelivery; Meghan Harvey, co-producer of Gov 2.0 Radio and new media producer for WomenCount.org; and Gov 2.0 Radio co-host and GovTwit founder Steve Lunceford.

What was your path to Gov 2.0?
I co-founded a group called Young Government Leaders, a professional organization that now consists of over 2,000 federal employees. I was responsible for launching our first website as well as our presence on sites like LinkedIn, Facebook, and MySpace. Based on my experience with YGL and these other social networks, I saw a true need for an online community devoted to the government sector where we could focus on sharing best practices and ideas to improve government. Thus GovLoop.com was born and it is often used as one of the case studies of Gov 2.0.
