    Hello all,

    I’m the founder of the Saskatchewan 3.0 Summit taking place in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada on April 23-25, 2012. The goal of the summit is to accelerate the adoption of digital technology and social media in Saskatchewan and help sustain our province’s economic growth. Here’s a link to the Summit website: http://www.sask3summit.com Here’s a link to a recent newspaper article about the summit: http://www.leaderpost.com/technology/Summit+focuses+digital+surge/6100803/story.html

    I’m very interested in hearing about great innovation examples from other jurisdictions and learning who the best folks are to speak on these topics. Currently we have several high profile keynote speakers including Vivek Kundra (former CIO of the US Fed Gov’t) and Dr. Nicholas Gruen (Chair, Australia’s Gov 2.0 Taskforce), but I’d also be interested in hearing from other government leaders that are doing exciting things in their jurisdictions.

    Below are the types of topics that I’d like to find experts to speak on. We don’t have many slots to fill still at this point, but would find room if we can find the right speaker(s). Let me know if you have any suggestions.

    Another area of interest is computer education and how we can encourage young people in Saskatchewan to pursue careers in the digital realm. Any good examples of that would also be appreciated.
