CIO Roundtable – Questions, Answers, Discussion

ImageSource held an Executive Roundtable at the Red Lion yesterday titled “How Social Networking, Mobile Computing and the Millennial Workforce Will Shape Digital Government.”  About 25 executives from Washington State attended to discuss Web 2.0 and all the new technology that makes information available at our fingertips.

Topics discussed in the roundtable included President Obama’s campaign, how technology is changing at a rapid pace, how to manage the content, as well as other topics.

The event lasted about an hour and a half and drew State employees from many different agencies. Questions were posed that drew great discussion from everyone. ImageSource plans on holding a follow up event to address some of the questions in more detail and possibly include a panel.
