The Government has just announced a new website www.gov2.net.au which is the destination for a new Government 2.0 Taskforce to publish information.
They’re beginning with a crowdsourcing competition to design the banner / logo for the site. You can get more information about the competition here – http://gov2.net.au/banner-competition/
This is a new, very positive side of the government, one that claims to have more transparency and seems to have representatives that understand the benefits of using social media. There’s been some great quotes from the forum (live streamed and discussed on twitter with #publicsphere), such as “Top down is no longer the best model of government".
