@kyledbowen Core missions need to evolve and integrate the online ecosystem *more* than in the past, when Web was PR or add-on. #hewebgov

via Nambu in reply to kyledbowen

@gravelpot Yes, but that does happen. Not many blacksmiths or town criers are needed in 2011. Question is: how to stay ahead. #hewebgov

via Nambu in reply to gravelpot

@bennc If governance is more clarity of current processes (rather than externally-imposed structure) would that reduce skepticism? #hewebgov

via Nambu in reply to bennc

@kyledbowen To me, an initiative is strategic if it explicitly supports a measurable medium- to long-term goal of the institution. #hewebgov

@Dan610 After more reflection, I realized you are very much correct. I was considering the iPad as a Web browser rather than a platform.

@Dan610 Good point. I usually shoot for cross-platform compatibility without browser sniffing, but that means I miss iOS specific features.
