Participants include a slew of leading government technology experts in education, health care, energy, jobs and financial reform, who are rethinking how government agencies carry out their missions. Social media, cloud computing, Web and mobile technologies--they're all on the table. Private-sector participants include Microsoft, SSA, PayPal, Craigslist, the Omidyar Network.
