The government 2.0 club is an organisation whose sole purpose is to make a better, more democratic government. Quite aptly, using software terminology, the new version of democracy would be known as Government 2.0. The ball was set rolling with the government 2.0 camp. This was an event back in 2009 which saw the meeting of industry experts, academics and representatives of the government in order to discuss using Web 2.0 technology and social media to design what would effectively be a new government, gov 2.0.
This sounds more confusing than it is. Web 2.0 is basically things like Facebook where the user can add to or change the content of the site. A user can post a message or video and the site viewed by everyone is actually different once they click “share” and the information is uploaded. The site has been effectively changed by the individual user, for this reason it is known as Web 2.0 as opposed to the original web, where all the user can do is passively read the content.
