Hey, techPresident.com is the major hub for networked grassroots democracy and Net-based government reform.  The good news is that government people who are genuine public servants have gotten the okay to directly address the public. (We need that in corporations also.)

Check out her introductory piece on techPresident:

… But what I’m hoping I can offer—as co-chair of the Federal Web Managers Council—is
an insider’s view of the government web manager community and the
challenges and issues we face every day in trying to transform
government websites to better serve the public. I want to share some
observations from inside the trenches. …

So here’s what I’m hoping to do. I want to: 1) have a spirited, ongoing
discussion about how we can use the Internet to transform interactions
between government and its citizens; 2) change perceptions that the
government is a bunch of faceless bureaucrats; and 3) amplify important
and innovative things going on inside and outside government that we
should adopt as government-wide standards or benchmarks.

Sheila's the real deal, and I welcome her as one of our new Nerd (content) overlords.

Craig,
You say:
"The good news is that government people who are genuine public servants have gotten the okay to directly address the public."
Yes, Sheila Campbell got permission to blog from her boss, but that doesn't mean that the federal employees outside of her small office can do it, too.
It will take some kind of language in Obama's "Open Government Directive" (now being drafted) to take the lead and "give the okay" for a federal employee to start blogging about what his/her office is doing. (That's why they call it "leadership".)
