Friday's Links

I haven’t done this in a while but here’s what interested me this week:

SXSW Panel: Government Sites Try Not to Suck
Vote for me!  Using a provocative title, I’m trying to sneak some government web folks into hipster-laden SXSW. 

SmartBike DC
These “rent by the hour” bikes have started to appear on the streets of the District.  I’d love to try one but I already have two bikes I don’t ride.

GovLoop
It’s Facebook for feds!

One thought on “Friday's Links”

  1. hey joe. just stumbled across your panel submission and am totally intrigued.

    full disclosure: i work for NIC Inc. and we run 21 states’ web sites and are desperately trying to make them suck less — though, admittedly, some have a way to go…

    i also submitted a panel about “Gov 2.0” — http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/ideas/view/1659

    anyhoo, mostly just a ping to say howdy — curious how your panel will evolve if you get picked! totally voted for you. 🙂
