Hello all,

Seeing that an introduction to the group is custom, here is mine.  Before I
start however, I enjoyed the phone call Wednesday and am excited to join the
group.  I hope that I can add value.

My name is Brian Gryth.  I am an attorney advisor (official title
Legislative and Legal Analyst) in the Business Division of the Colorado
Department of State/Secretary of State.  I am not a technologist per se.  (I
like technology and am proficient in some applications).  I should note that
my invlovement in this group is not as an official representative of the
State of Colorado or Department of State.

In the eGovernment realm, I am a co-project leader responsible for the
redesign project of the Secretary of State's system used to file and search
secured transactions filings.  The other project leader and I wrote the
system requirements and functional specifications for the system
(affectionately referred to as Darwin).  The only part of the project that I
do not play an affective rule in is the IT development, which is currently
being completed.  Darwin will hopefully deploy in early 2010.

In the Government 2.0 realm, I am a leader of a Division Web 2.0
project team that is exploring the use of Web 2.0 technology to improve the
Division and the Department.  We have been focusing on collaboration
projects of late.  One of our first efforts was to use a Google Group to
collaborate on an informal review of the secured transactions filing
office administrative rules.  We hope to also use a Google Group during the
testing period for Darwin to document problems and get constituent
(customer) by in.

I am also on the Department's on-line communications working group that is
currently developing policy concerning the use of social media by the
Department and by employees.  I am one of the primary drafter of the
Collaboration Policy that will address departmental useful of social media
for collaboration.

Outside of work, I am planning a Continuing Legal Education seminar about
Data Privacy and Social Media.

A colleague and I are hoping to organize a Government 2.0 Camp in Denver or
Boulder in the next few months.  More to come on that in the future.

I joined this group because it is associated with W3C and because it aims to
improve government.

Best wish and I look forward to working with you all,
