Supporting government transparency in Colorado
Rocky Mountain Gov 2.0 Camp
Today I am happy to announce that the first Rocky Mountain Gov 2.0 Camp in June 2010. Government 2.0 Camp is a participant driven and group organized unconference about government’s use of social media tools and Web 2.0 technologies. This camp will bring together government leaders, policy makers, scholars, students, contractors, and government employees to discuss and work collaboratively on improving government through technology.
The goal of the camp is to share information about Government 2.0 initiatives that are already in process and to collaborate about how to leverage social media tools and Web 2.0 technologies to create a more collaborative, efficient, and effective government at the local, state, and federal levels. Additional information about the event is available at http://barcamp.org/rmgov20camp (or the shorten link: http://bit.ly/5P14mc) and the Government 2.0 Camp Rocky Mountains group, http://groups.google.com/group/RMgov20camp?pli=1 (or the shorten link http://bit.ly/5QttB2).
The camp is tentatively scheduled for a Saturday in Mid-June. The location is to be determined, but it will be in Metro-Denver-Boulder area.
This event is open to anyone interested in improving government. We plan to provide free attendance for the event. The Eventbrite registration site will be available soon.

Some of ways you can help are by designing the event logo, arranging for camp t-shirts, meals, and helping with administration of the event. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. As a barcamp style event, the participation of everyone will make the event a success.
