by / January 23, 2013

I like Mark Funkhouser, director of The Governing Institute. He's a baby boomer government guy who breaks stereotypes that his generation isn't online savvy and that government is boring by blogging over at

Mark's twice weekly posts on the "Bring on the Funk" blog offer a seasoned perspective on governing in today's world, mixed with interviews and insight from some of the brightest young government leaders.

Hear other thoughts from The Funk in this GovGirl interview.
