AGIMO (the Australian Government Information Management Office) has a blog which is dedicated to the review of the Web Publishing Guide. Hopefully this blog will lead by example in showing how a Government department can communicate using a blog, lead to a more useful and usable Web Publishing Guide. As well as AGIMO beginning to understand web 2.0 tools and will start making use of other web 2.0 tools.
The big surprise for me (blogging more than a year after I expected is only minor), is that it is hosted in the cloud by wordpress.com. Not that there is anything wrong with this. I would actually recommend hosting a blog with wordpress.com as this resolves issues regarding security and keeping the wordpress current. It is just a conservative government department with I assume considerable IT resources surrendering the total control of hosting in house for the less secure external hosting.
