“Rise of the Goverati.” Isn’t that the new Terminator movie?
No, “goverati” is the term Mark Drapeau uses for:
people with first-hand knowledge of how the government operates, who understand how to use social software to accomplish a variety of government missions, and who want to use that knowledge for the benefit of all.
This includes people inside and outside of government who wish to apply Web 2.o principles and technologies to the not always transparent work of government.
And, as a former member of the goverati, I got to say, it’s a great term.
