Applied Practice Workshops: Web 2.0 – Everything You Always Wanted to Know… and More

OMG, this workshop was a WEB 2.0 101 workshop.  This workshop was very informative to those unfamiliar with online social networking and communications.  The facilitator, Andrew Krzmarzick, was able to explain how to podcast, blog, use RSS feeds, streamline news reading, and many other WEB 2.0 essentials.   By the responses from the audience, it was clear that his explanation was clearly delivered to the very diverse audience in the workshop. 

What was special about this workshop was that he explained to us how we can use these technologies in government and public service.  In fact, ASPA is using this now to bring to you this blog.  Other postings are available on myspace, facebook, linkedin, and govloop.  It’s amazing how these social networking sites, used largely for entertainment, can be used to deliver public services and information free of charge to anyone with an internet connection or mobile device.  I look forward to learning more about this now.
