US Navy CIO encourages and endorses use of Web 2.0 technologies has reported in, Navy encourages use of Web 2.0 tools, that the US Navy's CIO Robert Carey, the first government CIO to publish a public blog, has endorse the use of Web 2.0 tools to improve communication and collaboration.

Tools that include wikis, blogs and Web feeds will give warfighters seamless access to important information, Carey said.

“Web 2.0 tools are useful in a global enterprise, such as the Department of the Navy, as they enable widely dispersed commands and personnel to more effectively collaborate and share information,” he said.

In my humble opinion this approach applies equally well to any public sector organisation with multiple locations.
