" Don't miss this opportunity to hear and interact with Steven VanRoekel, " the Chief Information Officer of the United States, in his first public " appearance since his appointment by President Barack Obama in August 2011.

Details of the free meeting at Xerox PARC in Palo Alto CA are here:
The program begins at 7:00pm PDT Tuesday 25-OCT-2011 and the above page states the "event *WILL* be livestreamed. Details forthcoming."
As of 2:45am Monday, the livestreaming details are not yet online.
For those on the US West Coast who want to chance getting a seat in the PARC auditorium, you MUST register here:
Note the [QTY] input box near the bottom of the page; enter a "1" for yourself, click [SUBMIT], and proceed through the remaining pages [info about yourself, nametag, checkout review, etc.]. It's free and the transaction will always display a $0.00 value.
The last several pages take awhile to process, so I suspect they're checking availability, etc. When/if you get to the last (5th) page, you'll be registered and you'll shortly receive a confirming email.
Sorry for the late announcement. I've known about this event since last week but it wasn't until a colleague called late this evening asking if I received a confirmation that I realized registration is mandatory, thinking I could just drive the 3 miles to PARC and walk in. I had no trouble registering late Sunday night so there "should" still be available room.
