    Hey everyone! I'm very excited to see you all tomorrow night. We'll be at Bouncing Pixel's new office (2802 Albany). It's a beautiful, modern house-like office. Feel free to park on the street, walk in the front door, and go up the stairs. We'll get started around 630p. Thanks!

    Actually, I don't really work at the White House, but I go to the complex sometimes---it's a big complex.

    I'm planning to adjust my talk based on what the audience wants to hear about. However, one of my main goals is to explain the Presidential Innovation Fellowship and try to recruit people to apply for it in upcoming rounds.

    Additionally, I'll be talking about my own programming project, called P3 or "PricesPaid", which consists of 4 repos that can be found starting here: https://github.com/XGov/PricesPaidGUI.

    However, I can also talk a little about some other projects, like GreenButton, BlueButton, FBOpen, etc.

    I can slant my talk to the geek side or the policy/human interest side based on what people want to hear about.
