“We’re going to be moving from (Web) 1.0 to 1.2 to 2.0 to 2.5, and … the challenge and the problem is we shouldn’t take the status quo

as an acceptable position,” Commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard, Adm. Thad W. Allen told bloggers and online journalists during a DoD Live Bloggers Roundtable, Sept. 22.

Adm. Allen discussed plans to adopt social-media practices to modernize the Coast Guard and make the organization more transparent, both internally and to the public. “We need to keep improving wherever we can, whether it’s my presence inside or outside the Coast Guard, how we deal with the American public, but more importantly, how we deal with the folks in the Coast Guard.”

Joining us on the call were Jim Dolbow, an Unofficial Coast Guard Blog; Eagle1, www.eaglespeak.blogspot.com; Pentagon Channel; David Axe, www.warisboring.com; Marc Danziger, www.armedliberal.com; Peter Stinson, www.cgblog.com; Daren Lewis, an Unofficial Coast Guard Blog; and Navy Times.
