World Congress on Information Technology 2006 -- Austin, Texas (Second Report)

On May 4, Michael Dell, Chairman of Dell Computer, was the keynote speaker...

In the evening, we celebrated the presentation of the Chairman's Award to Hong Kong's Octopus Cards. Cindy Cheng of Octopus received the award from WITSA chairman George Newstrom, and Cathilea Robinett of the Center for Digital Government.

Then, Nicholas Negroponte gave his standard pitch for his $100 notebook. My view on this project has been documented before and I won't repeat!

Here's our picture with the mayor of Austin, Will Wynn, with Frankie Fong of OGCIO.

And the evening's special performing guests, Little Feat. They surely don't play guitars like this anymore!
