Startup.gov: Reworking Government Through Technical Innovation

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Saturday 12th March, 2011

1:00pm to 1:15pm (CST)

Open government initiatives over the past two years have shown that Washington can innovate and achieve results at the pace of startups when given the opportunity. We'll engage in a collaborative discussion on the merits and pitfalls of taking entrepreneurial ideals and translating them into big government infrastructure, breaking barriers and opening up new opportunities for public engagement.
