Code for America is putting together one of the world's signature open
government and civic technology conferences:


If you are considering attending, I encourage you to do so. Tickets
are still available.

During the event, catch the buzz on Twitter #cfasummit:

Since many of you are oceans away, they do have an awesome free
archive of 62 speeches from 2013 here:
     http://bit.ly/cfasummit2013videobyviews (most popular)

They will also live webcast their main stage speeches during waking
hours from the Americas to East Asia and the Australia/New Zealand (IF
you get up early and remember to add a day when you put on your

Webcast time zone converted (starts 2:30 pm Pacific time, Tue Sept 23.
then 1:30 pm day two and three):

Their agenda includes a number of great speeches, some snappy "ignite"
presentations, and ample time for "unconference" style sessions.

I'll definitely be participating with Tom Steinberg from mySociety and
Chia-liang Kao of g0v.tw in an unconference session on re-usable civic
tech components ( http://Poplus.org ).

During the conference, if you'd like to connect with me one on one to
explore opportunities and big ideas with civic tech, I am adding new
and interesting projects to my consulting mix through E-Democracy or
