Newmark, an uber-geek of world renown, resides in San Francisco and has become a leading advocate of personal democracy, media reform, and use of the social Web to transform governance. He recently wrote in the San Francisco Chronicle about the social Web's advantages:
* Irrelevance of geography: eveyone's "near" you
* Can scale to millions and beyond
Due to his deep well of experience in tech and customer service, Newmark is a growing influencer in the Government 2.0 movement.
Clark hails from a Sacramento suburb, and manages Web strategy and user experience design for CalPERS. She's also well known on the Gov 2.0 scene for working to advance best practices across local, state and federal government. We like her on Twitter, too.
Newmark and Clark will join me (Adriel Hampton), Steve Lunceford, Steve Ressler, and producer Meghan Harvey to talk about how the social Web can help contribute to bureacratic reform and enhanced collaboration between citizens and government. Join us!
Adriel Hampton is a journalist, Gov 2.0 and new media strategist, public servant, and licensed private investigator. He is running for U.S. Congress in the 2009 special election for California's 10th District.
