I had the honor in February to be on a panel on Digital Diplomacy at this year’s Gov20LA. The panel included Martha McLean of the Canadian Government, Gina Evans of the UK Government and myself. Our discussion was very interesting because it was only a couple of weeks into the Arab Spring. We talked about how we are leveraging technology for diplomacy and it’s impact on global events such as the Arab Spring. Alan W Silberberg was the moderator for the session. His questions were great at getting to the heart of what diplomacy means in the modern age, where it is going and it’s potential impact. I really enjoyed this panel and think it is one of the most interesting public discussions I have had on the topic of Digital Diplomacy.
