"Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted." — Albert Einstein.
Lee Rainie, Director of the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, will kick off this Web Analytics Lecture Series with a discussion on “The Future of the Web and New Media in Government.” Lee will provide an overview of the current state of the Internet, social media, mobile, and digital communications—all from the unique perspective of the Pew Research Center.
The Web Metrics Sub-Council of the Federal Web Managers Council, and DigitalGov University, invite you to this first in a series of events honoring the memory of Joe Pagano, former co-chair of the Web Metrics Sub-Council. Joe was a friend and teacher to many in the government web community. This Web Analytics lecture series celebrates our commitment to continuing Joe’s legacy of using metrics to deliver exceptional customer service.
Join us in honoring the memory of Joe Pagano, a person who counted in every sense.
