Implementing social technologies in the government requires senior leadership buy-in and endorsement of the tools in daily operations, organizational discipline, and a methodology based on trusted identity and community architectures and protocols. This session will examine how the movement to Web 2.0 technologies to enhance an agency's mission is as challenging as the evolution to personal computers with word processing software and networked email was over two decades ago. After attending this session— selected for inclusion in this program by garnering the highest number of votes on Twitter—participants will be able to:

> Define the role of executive leadership in social networking implementations

> Describe how trusted identity and community architectures and protocols are used during implementation

> Recognize and engage cultural and institutional barriers to change

> Set goals for risk mitigation strategies for Web 2.0 Implementation
