Drapeau: The rise of the goverati — Federal Computer Week

Who are the goverati, you might ask — and are you among them? Goverati is a term I coined a few weeks ago while participating in a Social Media Club DC discussion panel. In essence, the goverati are people familiar with government and how it works and who understand new social technologies. They want to network with one another to foster an increasingly transparent, participatory and collaborative government.

… people like my partner’s cousin’s husband who works at the Treasury and is an avid user of Twitter via his iPhone. I like Drapeau’s take on the citizen as a conversation.
