Government 2.0 Live from Parliament House Canberra

Greetings from Government 2.0: Policy and Practice at Parliament House in Canberra. The event is has a live video stream and event wall. Comments are invited, during and after, to the event web site, as well as blogs taged publicsphere and Twitter #publicsphere. . I will be speaking on "m-Government 2.0 - Making government accessible online on your phone" in the afternoon. You can post questions for the presentations; a screen for the event wall set up tat the front of the room. We are in the main Senate hearing room. There are about 100 people at the event in the room. There is a upper press gallery empty, so anyone in Parliament House can drop in and listen.

The first presentation under way now is from William Perrin, Secretary of the Power of Information Taskforce Gov 2.0 in the UK: Policy and Status. He is giving us a salutary reminder that in amongst all the Web 2.0 jargon and technology we need to give practical examples of how the technology is useful to people. I will be giving some examples in my talk.
