Virtual Worlds and the Rise of the Goverati

What is the Goverati? Mark Drapeau defines it as made up of people with first-hand knowledge of how the government operates, who understand how to use social software to accomplish a variety of government missions, and who want to use that knowledge for the benefit of all.

Today our society faces numerous challenges from the economy to the climate. As a democratic society we must engage the general public and crowd source the solutions. That said, we have a long way to go and the Goverati can not do it alone. Do you want to be part of the solution? Moreover, how can your government enable you to execute on your ideas?
