Governing and Social Networking

The Washington Times features an article on an interesting social networking website for government workers called GovLoop.

The site was founded a year ago by Steve Ressler, 28, an information-technology specialist at the Department of Homeland Security. Already, more than 14,000 people have joined, creating nearly 500 subcommunities and more than 1,000 discussion forums. Brainstorming sessions online have produced ideas on everything from government transparency to interoffice communication.

Even the White House has taken note.
