Yes it’s the day after St. Patty’s Day, but it’s not too late to put down your Guinness and still dance a jig. It’s the biggest two days of the year for online government types. No, not St. Patrick’s Day and its aftermath, but the annual Government Web And New Media Conference. Why the jig? Because this year you can watch the conference live…

What’s billed as the “largest gathering of government Web and New Media professionals in the U.S.,” is happening today in Washington, D.C., but this year the event is also being webstreamed for everyone to enjoy.

You can watch a recap of Thursday’s events or tune in live now for sessions like “Making Data Sociable,” “Building a Successful Social Media Performance Strategy,” and “Top Ten Mobile Pitfalls.”

Hosted by the GSA, this year the Government Web And New Media Conference is also promoting its own hashtag: #govwebcon for conversations on Twitter.

So, go ahead, make it a trending topic. Enjoy!
