Poll: Stakeholders & Web 2.0

The recent blog post from Charles Sturt University Regional Archives about the operation of their Advisory committee started me thinking about stakeholders, the way we interact with them and how this will be changed by Web 2.o.  The report of the Government 2.0 Taskforce “Engage: Getting on with Government2.o” made 13 recommendations and a number of key points. One of those points is:

Government 2.0 is a key means for renewing the public sector; offering new tools for public servants to engage and respond to the community; empower the enthusiastic, share ideas and further develop their expertise through networks of knowledge with fellow professionals and others. Together, public servants and interested communities can work to address complex policy and service delivery challenges.

State Records NSW has started to move forward on this front with the blogs Future Proof and Archives Outside as well as with Twitter and Flickr. However, it is still early days and it will be interesting to see how this evolves over time and if/when we are able to expand our involvement in Government 2.0.  I thought it would be interesting to hear from other organisations about their involvement in Web 2.0.

It would also be great to see some of your favourite Web 2.o links in the comments  or why not pimp your own site?

    The above poll assumes only one sort of interaction. What about institutions who use all of the above options?

    Thanks for pointing that out Michelle, I thought I’d made it multiple choice but obviously I didn’t! I’ve just edited the poll settings so it should work now (or at least it will in about 10 minutes). Sorry for the mix up.

    Edited to add: It’s officially working now.
