Gov 2.0 LA:

I am one of the organizers for the Gov 2.0 LA conference.  I have been largely responsible for the development of the program and speaker selection.  This event is an annual event that occurs in February in Los Angeles.  The goal of the Gov 2.0 LA conference is to bring together technologists, entrepreneurs, government employees from all levels of government and from non-U.S. governments.  We are working to find new ways to connect people with problems with those who can provide solutions in order to help governments provide better services to their citizens.  For more information on Gov 2.0 LA please visit our website at
