After talking around the traps and having a bit of a ponder I think it is about time to refocus OZloop. Personally, I see it as an evolving beast anyway.


The Gov 2.0 Taskforce Report focus and title Engage: Getting on with Government 2.0 sparked the thought of public servants and community colleagues just getting on with engaging with one another.
