These are my links for January 8th through January 10th:
- Communities and Collaboration – New blog post: Web 2.0 in Local Government http://tinyurl.com/9kebga
- Web 2 in Local Government – How and why local authorities and Government should be planning to exploit the collaborative features of Web 2.0

Some of the latest blog and twitter conversation threads on KM vs. social computing or KM vs. Enterprise 2.0 or KM vs. social-anything miss that subtle point.
