3rd Annual disruptive "Gov 2.0 L.A." Gov20LA was created to embody the best business, government, technology and people can offer.
This past year we have seen occupy movements sweep cities big and small around the globe. We have seen whole countries fall to the power of organized people leveraging social media. Now it is time to occupy your computer screen and occupy your mind with real ideas for real change.
We recognized the need for people around the world to be able to voice their concerns, and want to do our part in a non violent, non threatening way. Help occupy Gov20LA by helping us drive the dialog with amazing people designed to further participatory democracy.
Gov 2.0 L.A. is a highly disruptive event which encourages frank and open dialog between governments, businesses, and people. We focus on advancing participatory democracy around the world, and saving us all money and aggravation in the process of our daily dealings with government. We focus on creating the dialog and bringing the leaders together in a casual, non threatening way to expand participatory democracy.
This is our 3rd Gov 2.0 L.A. which was created by Alan W. Silberberg to bring together the best minds in Government 2.0 and social media, mobile, technology. Gov 2.0 L.A. 2011 was amazing. We brought together the worlds experts on government, social media and people right at a time when Tunisia had just fallen, and Egypt was just getting started.
Your kickstarter contribution will help us drive the dialog further, and continue to push the edge of the technology envelope with a live stream, chats, integrated use of multiple social media outlets and fantastic people in the room and around the world watching. Occupy your computer screen for a day, and Gov20LA occupy your mind with ideas for change.
The entire event is live-streamed to the world for free and we capture high definition videos; which are then released at no charge under creative commons license so democratic minded people around the world can learn and apply the lessons themselves.
This year we don’t expect any world revolutions while holding the event again, but who knows?
The three themes of this upcoming Gov20LA 2012 are going to be:
1. How is Government at all levels being forced to restructure the "business of government" and how does this affect people, countries, companies?
2. Goverment use and management of social media in crisis like earthquakes, hurricanes, wildfires, large scale urban fires, protests and riots.
3. Engagement is now being taken as a for granted thing: “everyone has a facebook page” but how real is it and how are crowd-sourcing and public private partnerships re-arranging the landscape?
