Hi friends! I had the tremendous privilege of attending the g0v Summit in Taiwan last year, to meet with some of my heroes and talk about the future of democracy together.

I've just published a blog post to share my reflections from the trip.

I would love to hear your thoughts :)

beautifully designed, exquisitely

Some words missing after "exquisitely"?

Thanks @au - that should say "beautifully designed, exquisitely executed."

When's the next Summit!?

Thank you. Nice work.

The language barrier seemed to be minor. You responded to questions like you understood Chinese.
"While 80% of the Summit was conducted in Chinese, I didn’t miss a word: all the main sessions were accompanied by live translations delivered by radio and webcast, and simultaneous interpreters were on hand even for the informal conversations to make sure everyone could participate."
I take it your talk was translated too? (English to Chinese)?

Joum: Yeah, I translated Rich's slides ahead of time, and our interpreted provided synchronous translation during the talk.
