Recently I contacted by a program manager with the CIO of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence asking if they could share my Web 2.0 presentation with members of the intelligence community that “do not have access to the Internet from work”. From the email:
I was recently shown your Web 2.0 presentation by a colleague here in the Intelligence Community. As you may know from numerous press releases over the past year, the U.S. Intelligence Community is embracing the technologies that will help bring the concepts of Web 2.0 to our analysts . My Colleague felt your presentation, like Professor Wesch’s video on 2.0 was a great way to help educate folks on what to expect and what not to expect.
After checking the email headers to make sure I wasn’t being punk’ed, I replied that I’d be happy to share my presentation. But, perhaps my favorite line of the email was the last:
I wish our briefing staff here would use some of the techniques you did.
So, who’s up for a 400+ slide deck from the .gov? 😉
