Earlier this month two members of the Google Open Source Programs Office, Chris DiBona and Jeremy Allison, traveled to Washington, D.C. to speak on a panel about open source in government at the State Department’s Tech@State: Open Source conference.

Chris and Jeremy were joined by an impressive lineup of speakers who joined together to illustrate how open source software can improve the education, health, and welfare of the world's population. The video of their discussion is featured above, and more information about the event and videos from all of the sessions are available on the conference’s video page.
