Just to let you know, I have had a few interesting interactions in the past 6-9 months with a few people I've known over the years who work the Washington world.  Depending on what you think the interest levels and opportunities may be I think it could be possible to get serious about intra-federal-govt needs as well as all the e-govt "opportunities".  And then there are the specific medical and health services things gaining some recent traction.

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.

This weekend is a BarCamp style event in DC called Transparency Camp by the Sunlight Foundation and some government agencies.  Chris is attending and I'll most likely attend (attendance is closed at this point so unfortunately Don wouldn't be able to make it) though I'm wondering if the OpenID Foundation would want to sponsor it since Chris will be there and I might?

Sponsorships start at $50 and getting OpenID better in front of government in a semi more formal manner seems like a good idea.  If nothing else, does anyone object if I personally given an in-kind sponsorship for the Foundation?  Would anyone object to the Foundation itself sponsoring the event for $150?
