There are big barriers to finding that research for everyday people - such as paywalls and complicated search features.

Gov 2.0 Expo Showcase - Co-produced by TechWeb & O'Reilly Conferences, September 08 Washington, DC

Gov 2.0 Expo logo The theme of Gov 2.0 Expo Showcase is Government as a Platform. When the static Web 1.0 evolved to a malleable read/write version, it was dubbed a Web 2.0 platform. As there, so here. When citizens interact with their government, powerful things can happen. It means doing more with less people. It means breaking down too-familiar "cylinders of excellence." It means exploiting global creativity and changing workplace models and traditional designs for carrying out missions.
