Straight out of PariSoMa, tonight’s live TechAtlas SF webcast will feature Ron Vinson, deputy director of the San Francisco Department of Telecommunications and Information Systems, Eric Kansa from UC Berkeley’s Information School, and your host Cyrus Farivar, from everywhere else.

They’re going to talk about “how best to capitalize on the principal of Open Government 2.0.” Which, we hope, means we’ll be seeing a lot more transparency from city departments than we have now. Right?

It all happens from 7-8 PM PT Tuesday night, in the player below. We hope you’ll join them for what should be a thrilling chat — and don’t forget to post your questions and comments in the little question/comment box. We know we will be!
