It has one basic theme that is a little difficult for me, which is that my generation is sort of a bunch of dodos, that we stagger through life with just one idea in our minds, which on top of it, is hugely wrong. We don’t have the perception to look at the multiplicity of events that the modern generation experiences.


CapitolCamp – This un-conference is about convening a trans-partisan group of citizens and civil servants (and perhaps even elected officials?) to come together and share ideas about how technology can make New York State Government work better for all the citizens of the Empire State.

This first CapitolCamp is sponsored by the New York State Senate, and will include a session track about how the Senate is using technology to reinvent itself, and to brainstorm on the road ahead.

Another session track, with participation by the New York State Office of the Chief Information Officer, will focus on how technology is being used to transform State Agencies.

A third session track will focus on comparing and contrasting New York State’s use of technology in its government with that of other States.

Follow @CapitolCamp on Twitter and join us on Friday, June 5th at the New York State Capitol for the inaugural CapitolCamp.

i’m out in SF/Berkeley for a conference and decided to find me one ellusive bike coffee cup holder. in all of the US there appears to be two vendors: SOMA (the item picuture above) and Topline (who also makes a beach chair/surfboard carier). now it’s time to figure out how to get a bag vendor (in bike speak, a pannier) to send me a sample bag or two.
