Personal Democracy Forum: Day Two

It's day two here at the Personal Democracy Forum 2009 Conference. For a great roundup of all the sessions and speakers from yesterday, click here to read a great recap by Nancy Scola of TechPresident.

Day Two is off to a great start. Vivek Kundra, the first ever Federal Chief of Information Officer is currently talking about how we make sure that technology produces the dividends that it promises. The government currently spends over $70 billion dollars a year on technology. Kundra is currently unveiling of an interactive dashboard that will make available details about every major federal information technology project. He calls it version 1.0, and has been launched in beta. He just got a standing ovation from the crowd.

Later this morning, there's more great speakers, including Randi Zuckerberg of Facebook. More breakout sessions this afternoon include how the internet ecosystem can improve journalism, mapping the networked public sphere, and how social networks are changing politics, just to name a few.
