It’s the first day of September, and with it the beginning of the fall conference season. After looking toward the months head, my colleague Laurel Ruma and I thought that it would be worth sharing the camps, panels, conferences and forums that were on our “radar.” We won’t be able to attend all of them, unfortunately, but the community should be aware of what’s happening. I hope to see many of you at the Gov 2.0 Summit next week.
