    By the way, if you missed the April meetup and want to catch an encore presentation of the White House API Standards, it's definitely worth your time. We've got the links to a video we did with them at at the US Government APIs listserve. Definitely worth watching.

    I must'd misunderstood, but there was supposed to be an announcement today about the petitions API, correct ?

    Loved the Obama clip prior to the White House team presentation... 'so what the heck is the Open Gov API anyway?' Great evening. Much thanks to all the hosts.

    Top notch as always; the White House team was quite a coup, and the other guys were very good as well.
