Our first "Blackberry President" was the impetus for this discussion on transparency, participation, and collaboration in government. We started with President Obama's memorandum on Transparency and Open Government: "My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government."
Dan Bricklin moderated a panel of experts including Doc Searls, co-author of the Cluetrain Manifesto, Harvard's Berkman Center Fellow, and senior editor for Linux Journal; Susie Adams, Microsoft Federal Civilian and IGO Chief Technology Officer; Tim Yeaton, the new CEO of Black Duck Software (formerly Red Hat and Macromedia); and Tom Kincaid, Executive Director of Sun's Application Platform organization (part of the original Java EE architecture and management teams).
