I'm looking forward to presenting "The New Look of Interactive Government" at the Nevada Interactive Media Summit on March 6. Many of the sessions sound very interesting. Try to attend if you can!
My session explores concepts such as government involvement with mobile and iPhone applications, widgets, sharing data, social networks, live chat and online town halls. Attendees can expect to learn about the latest government strategies for new media and web interactivity, including discussion of the City of Reno’s own approach.
Kristy is known as "GovGirl" in the government technology industry. She is a former city government web manager who has a passion for social media, technology and the lighter side of government life.
