GOSCON 2010 opened with a general session; "Executive Open Data Roundtable: The State of Open Government". The Roundtable featured state, city and federal leaders exploring the successes and challenges of the open government directive. The roundtable included discussion of the successes and challenges launching their “Open” initiatives, programs influence on state and local government operations, and the role of open source software in executing the programs. The roundtable was led by Andy Stein, Director of Information Technology for the City of Newport News, Virginia and perennial GOSCON Committee member.
