Last night was the Philly GovUp. I lived in Philly for 2 years and love coming back.
And I have to say the Philly GovUp was awesome. We could see the whole city from our venue and we had an amazing audience. 65+ folks showed up ranging from DLA, GSA,City of Philadelphia, OPM, Next American City, GovLive, and others. Even 2 of the recent Code for America Fellows were in attendance.
Our speaker was Allan Frank, CTO of Philadelphia who simply rocked it. Full of passion and energy - he's the new Pat Croce to me (former owner of Philadelphia 76ers who is known for his passion). He laid out his vision for the "Gigabit City" and the great potential for Philly to harness technology.
Thanks for everyone for coming and extra special thanks to GSA (especially Sue) for helping us put this on...and thanks to Video Minutes for shooting video. Here's the video:
