This was the most thought provoking and inspiring session, as it became clear just how much work there is to do on making governmental and democratic practices open, timely, and honest. I came away feeling very motivated, and enjoyed most of the speakers here.
My only complaint would be that Catalist's section of the talk felt more like an advertisement, or at the least an unnecessary lesson on how to use their software, than a talk.
