About The Mobile Gov Blog
We live in a time when more pre-schoolers can use a smartphone app than can tie their shoes. How does government prepare to meet the information needs of these budding citizens? Mobile Gov means providing information and services to the public anywhere and anytime.
This blog is to help those in agencies working on mobile services and information for the public. We’ll scour the innerwebs for mobile info so you don’t have to. Expect posts on what government is doing in mobile, general mobile news, trends in mobile use, and issues on implementing mobile for the public.
