USA.gov goes web 2.0

The website USA.gov, "Government made easy", has added Web 2.0 tools to the portal: a governmentwide news feed service, a gallery of online gadgets, and a word cloud that depicts the most popular online government content.

The Government News Aggregator lets users receive consolidated news and information from across the federal government, delivered through RSS feeds.

The Government Gadget Gallery is a collection of gadgets and widgets organized by topic and created by subject-matter experts, which can be embedded in home pages, blogs, and other sites.

USA.gov Word Cloud allows one to see at a glance which key words are most often searched.
