Federal government gets Web 2.0 guidance
By The Post's Michael D. Shear:
Users of social media, rejoice!
It will soon be much easier to interact with the federal government, through tweets, blogs and wikis, without forcing agencies to jump through procedural hoops that were set up by the Paperwork Reduction Act.
As part of the Obama administration's efforts to instill a new level of openness within federal offices, government lawyers have now clarified -- sort of -- how the PRA will treat the new forms of online interactions between agencies and the public.
We say "sort of" because, as with so many government documents, there are no simple "yes" or "no" guidelines in the memorandum titled "Social Media, Web-Based Interactive technologies, and the Paperwork Reduction Act."
