First Tap the Collective in DC a Success

I'll give a more detailed recap in the next couple days, but last night we co-hosted an event in Washington, DC last night called "Tap the Collective" where we brought together the "do'ers" behind some of the more interesting collective intelligence projects going on in Washington. Attendance was fantastic, we got about 20 questions for the q&a, and our speakers, with a 7 minute time limit, each did a great job succinctly explaining their initiatives and some of the cultural battles they're waging internally to increase the likelihood of success.

My favorite quote from the night:

"No one ever retires from NASA; they just die."
- Emma Antunes from NASA explaining what a great place to work it is.

More soon, including video and photos of the evening.
