If you’re new to the Gov 2.0 world or looking to immerse yourself in what’s going on, go here for the best jumping off point: http://www.socialbrite.org/2010/08/10/cool-gov-2-0-sites-you-dont-know-about/

I want to echo the sentiment in the post about the stuff Alex Howard writes on the O’Reilly Radar blog.  Back in April, when I started up again at NASA Ames, Alex’s posts were totally invaluable in catching up what’s going on the Gov 2.0 space.  He’s pretty tireless when it comes to coverage of the meme.  I met at Alex at the Gov 2.0 Expo this past May and was pleased to be able to personally tell him that his writing helped bring me up to speed.  I don’t know how he did it, but he managed to provide coverage of multiple sessions taking place at the same time.  Just as valuable is following Alex on Twitter
