CEOs Weigh in on Government 2.0 at Obama Administration Briefing
By Beth J. Bates, New Media Special Correspondent
On January 14, the Obama administration held a series of events to support its campaign promise to use technology to make government more transparent. A selection of executives and CEOs, largely from the tech sector, were paired with government officials and asked their opinions on how technology could be better used to streamline government programs.
Among those in attendance was Craig Newmark, founder of Craig’s List and Microsoft’s CEO, Steve Ballmer. The administration is pushing for the use of new technology in an effort to improve the efficiency of antiquated government processes using technology similar to the private sector.
Do you think that efforts to make government transparent will succeed? Have you witnessed positive effects of technology solving government process issues?
