US DOD adopts Web 2.0
I came across the United States Department of Defence website the other day and was really amazed to see such an innovative Government site. I was expecting to see a traditional, staid, non-functional portal not something that is interactive and actually interesting to use.
I can only assume that the design of the site is intended to capture the next generation of military who have grown up with FaceBook and YouTube and I think the US Gov have hit the mark with their approach!
I particularly like the mashup of video, tailored Web 2.0 apps (checkout the DOD FaceBook page) and clear links to related information. A lot of Organisations could learn a thing or two about web design here…
If you are interested in Web 2.0 in action, this site is worth a look
