[OpenID board] Sponsoring Transparency Camp?

To follow up on the event, it was a rather large success, I'd say, with
representatives from OMB, GSA, State, DOD and other acronymatic orgs.
Dave and I presented on the DiSo Project and had a round-table discussion on
OpenID for the government, which was received very well.

The government seems eager to learn more about OpenID, and I think our
attendance (and Dave's/OIDF's sponsorship) was money well spent.

Episode 31 of TheSocialWeb.tv provides an overview of our experience:
