GovSM interview talking about President Obama’s Google+ hangout

This morning I was interviewed by Tim Farley, host of SiriusXM’s Morning Briefing on POTUS channel 124. We talked about President Obama’s upcoming Google+ hangout and all the questions he received from the White House Youtube page. Take a listen below and please give feedback (style substance or otherwise) in the comments below.

Week in Review: SOPA and PIPA are withdrawn indefinitely 1/20

What an excellent week for social media communication with government. After this week’s 1/18 protest which saw numerous sites like Wikipedia completely shut down and other’s like Google direct users to contact their Congressmen, Senator Reid and Rep Lamar Smith today pulled their respective bills off the legislative calendars for consideration. Now they will be reworked and presumably brought back after EXPERT testimony is given. The battle has been won but the war is far from over – keep fighting.

Week in review 1/13 – New Hampshire Primary

Another win for Romney, who seems all but certain to be the 2012 GOP nominee. This week also featured a lot of debate about the ability of social media to predict primary election results. And of course, the Obama campaign rolled out @michelleobama on twitter, who picked up roughly 250,000 followers in 24 hours. The First Lady has already tweeted twice herself, using the signature -mo on the tweet to differentiate from campaign staff tweets. To the links:

Week in review: Iowa Caucus

Even though Santorum had all the momentum from the Caucus, it seems like nothing can stop Romney from securing the nomination.
