If you think Arianna Huffington, GoRemy (of Arlington Rap fame), and Craigslist founder Craig Newmark in the same room is the start of a bad joke, think again. They’re all speaking at FedTalks 2010, a conference dedicated to how technology can improve and support the goals of the federal government. Following the conference, there’s a reception to celebrate Fedscoop’s second anniversary, with an appearance by “White House DJ” Donald Syriani. At Sidney Harman Hall at 9 AM. Register ($295) here.
