GovLoop Founder Steve Ressler Honored at Fed 100

Last Wednesday evening, I was honored to have been invited by Steve Ressler, founder of GovLoop and co-founder of Young Government Leaders, to accompany him to the Fed 100 Awards. Jeremy Ames led the charge for the award submission. Adriel Hampton and I contributed some language to the final nomination. It was a nice evening that gave me the chance to meet several notable folks who are transforming government through their great work, such as:

> Scott Burns (@smburns) of GovDelivery

> Frank DiGiammarino at the National Academy for Public Administration

> Bev Godwin (@bevusa), former Director of USA.gov who has been detailed to the White House

> Sheila Campbell, also at USA.gov and co-chair of the Federal Web Manager's Council

Another honoree that I met later in the week at Gov 2.0 Camp was Eric Hackathorn (@hackshaven), who built the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Meteora Island in Second Life.

The video below captures a fun moment before we stepped into the car of Maxine Teller (@mixtmedia) to get transported to the event:
