Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is coming to Lean Startup/Hypepotamus

In terms of what types of people, I'd love to talk to anyone who's trying to:
- catalyze more/better citizen participation in government - put civic data online and get developers to care about and use it - figure out what the modern web means for their digital presence - manage a new or rapidly growing startup, either inside or outside of the public sector - understand WTF actually goes on inside a federal agency Dan Munz is a web and civic engagement professional with a strong background in public administration. A public servant, web product strategist, and aspiring geek, Dan has over five years' experience in building technology, the open web, and citizen participation into federal mission execution and policymaking. At the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, he helped conceive and execute the "Know Before You Owe" campaign (http://www.consumerfinance.gov/knowbeforeyouowe/), which has successfully built an open, participatory, user-focused design process into the disclosures millions of consumers and lenders will use when applying for a mortgage loan. He currently serves as product director for consumerfinance.gov, the Bureau's flagship digital property. In this role, he is responsible for leading the daily activities of a product-focused web team, articulating product priorities and a release roadmap, and shepherding individual digital products – like the Bureau’s online knowledge base, Ask CFPB (http://consumerfinance.gov/askcfpb/) – to success on the web.
Prior to working at the Bureau, Dan helped stand up the General Services Administration’s Center for New Media and Civic Engagement, which provides shared services to federal agencies looking to use the web and social media effectively. There, he helped lead the successful launch of challenge.gov, which recently celebrated its second anniversary (http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/09/05/challengegov-two-years-and-200-prizes-later).
