Workers meet at coffeeshop to improve mobile gov

Wikithon spurs gov engagement in mobile

Do you have an idea how to improve government’s use of mobile technology? Or do you just want to know what Mobile Gov is all about? Then you might want to drop by the Mobile Gov Wikithon in Washington. D.C.

The facilitators from GSA's Office of Citizen Services and Innovative Technologies hope to find out how agencies are using the Digital Government Strategy,  the goal of which is to make government more accessible to the citizenry via mobile devices. They will also show people how to create a Mobile Gov Wiki account that will let them start contributing in their particular areas of expertise.

It is taking place on Thursday, Jan. 31, from 2-4 p.m. in the Starbucks at 801 18th St NW. They’ll have a conference table reserved for this event, and it’s a pretty big coffee shop, so they should have plenty of room (hopefully).
