Fed 100 - Video of Honoree Steve Ressler, Founder of GovLoop

Last Wednesday evening, I was honored to have been invited by Steve Ressler, founder of GovLoop and co-founder of Young Government Leaders, to accompany him to the Fed 100 Awards. It was a nice evening that gave me the chance to meet several notable folks who are transforming government through their great work, such as:

> Scott Burns (@smburns) of GovDelivery

> Frank DiGiammarino at the National Academy for Public Administration

> Bev Godwin (@bevusa), former Director of USA.gov who has been detailed to the White House

> Sheila Campbell, also at USA.gov and co-chair of the Federal Web Manager's Council

Another honoree that I met later in the week at Gov 2.0 Camp was Eric Hackathorn (@hackshaven), who built the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Meteora Island in Second Life.

The video below captures a fun moment before we stepped into the car of Maxine Teller (@mixtmedia) to get transported to the event:

Sounds like you have video commentator in your future, Andy!

The man gets honored and no tux, fine; but no polished shoes? Tsk!

Hey Ari - After we help a bunch of agencies with this social media thing, I plan to take Anderson Cooper's job.

Tracy - Awesome to meet you, too! We'll be in touch...
