After the presentations, we will hold a random drawing to give away a ticket to Personal Democracy Forum
, a $495 value
. Personal Democracy Forum is the world's largest and best known conference on the intersection of technology and politics. For the sixth year, more than 1,000 top opinion makers, political practitioners, technologists and journalists will come together to network, exchange ideas, and explore how technology and the Internet are changing politics, democracy, and society. Anyone still standing at 9pm should follow us down to Fat Cats for more fun. So if you want to find out how to get involved in this movement, or to find volunteers for your project, sign up now. We ask for a $10 donation up front to cover space and food, but no one will be turned away. See you there!
