The Canadian Government will combine Identity technologies with social media to enable their Open Government 2.0 strategy – Enterprise 2.0 – and it will be available to the public.

The term ‘Enterprise 2.0’ was coined by MIT Professor Andrew McAfee, who became widely known for the topic following his MIT white paper ‘Dawn of Emergent Collaboration’, describing how organizations could greatly improve their knowledge management capabilities through adopting the social software that powers Web 2.0 sites, like Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, etc.

We found this interesting piece of news on Sys-Con Media in their article, “Open Hypermedia Government – High performance public service.” Of course, we already knew the power of social media and semantic technology. But it will be interesting to see its application in the government sector.
