Pentagon moves closer to embracing Web 2.0 technology - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Web 2.0Remember back in the day when The 9/11 Commission Report outlined the lack of coordination between different government agencies in “assessing vulnerabilities and handling problems of protection and preparedness“? Looks like government agencies are doing their part for history not to repeat itself. A key part of that strategy is embracing Web 2.0 technology.

Recently, the Information Technology American Association held a conference on that very issue. A key part of the conference focused on what different government bodies could learn from the likes of craigslist, Wikipedia, and MySpace in boosting national security.

“Our collaboration, our bringing multiple brains to task on a product is really powerful. Do we do that? Not as well as we could. Are we heading there? The answer is yes,“ said Robert Carey, chief information officer of the Department of the Navy, in an interview with Manuel Baigorri of Medill Reports. For more highlights from the conference, be sure to check out the full story.
