Hi there,

Planning is underway for the Southeast User Group Leaders Summit on
October 17 in Atlanta, GA metro area. The goal of this event is to share
tips and discuss the issues and challenges facing technology groups
regardless of the actual technology the group is focused on, such as
finding locations, getting speakers, seeking out sponsorship, growing
membership, hosting special events, etc. If you're a UG leader located
in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, or Tennessee--please check
out the wiki site and see if you can join us.

Please pass along any part of this newsletter to your group via email or
your website and include the discount codes. We offer both a text and an
HTML version.

How Tim O'Reilly Aims to Change Government

"Some people go to Washington to try to make the government more honest;
others try to make it smaller," writes Marshall Kirkpatrick for
ReadWriteWeb. "Technologist Tim O'Reilly is spending time in Washington,
and bringing Washington officials to San Francisco, to do something
different - perhaps something more realistic. O'Reilly is trying to help
government become a platform for innovation. A "government as platform"
would supply raw digital data and other forms of support for private
sector innovators to build on top of." Read more about Tim's ideas for
transforming government.
