Today is DigitalGov’s third birthday and over the last three years, we’ve achieved so much—many thanks to you and your feedback.
We’ve published more than 1,000 articles, which have been seen by over 800,000 people resulting in over 2.4 million page views. Our tens of thousands of daily and weekly newsletter subscribers represent every branch and agency in the U.S. government, as well as state and local governments. DigitalGov is also a key source of digital innovation information for governments big and small around the world.
Our communities unite federal teams with nearly 10,000 memberships across 16 active mission areas, including: mobile development, open data and innovation, social technologies, agile/lean, and customer experience.
DigitalGov was also named as a 2015 must-read blog by FedTech magazine, which is due to the great contributions from our many guest authors.
DigitalGov.gov launched Feb. 14, 2014, with an article on the importance of social media engagement between agencies, not just with the public, by Dorothy Amatucci of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
