Read all about it: digital public affairs in print

July 11, 2008 at 3:35 pm 5 comments

If you’re looking for an overview of our (my) world view in terms of how digital and public affairs fit together, then have a read of this article. Originally available in the “strategy and practice” (!) section of the print version of the online movers and shakers and events website (e.g. it’s a bit like “Hello” magazine for Brussels). The publishers have kindly agreed to allow us to put a pdf version up on this blog.

Thoughts, reflections and rotten vegetables; all are most welcome in the comments section of this post.

Whatever the definition of public affairs is (and I agree, it is some nebulous definition at best), the internet is allowing government officials to move into greater dialogue with their constituents…I think, elevating public affairs (at least in part) to the ideal that it should be.

    Thanks Teri, we’d agree with your noble sentiments. We’d like it to continue here in Brussels and to be part of it from a professional and personal standpoint.


  • […] to it. It is also not the most beautiful presentation ever created. This said, please check out the article I wrote that sums up in prose some of what I said in person. Alternatively, pass by for a coffee if you are […]
