A Great Weekend in Raleigh!

What a great weekend in Raleigh! As all of you know, this was a big and busy weekend for Raleigh. Rise Up Raleigh was held Friday night, and turned out to be a huge success! Thank you to all of those who attended and made a donation, and thanks to all of the sponsors and musicians who put together such a great evening. More than $21,000 has been raised for the victims of the April 16 tornadoes, and donations will be taken until June 9. It has been very impressive, and also very touching, to see our community come together to help those in need. Rise Up Raleigh did a fantastic job of celebrating that effort and community spirit!

Also this weekend, CityCamp was held. It too was a huge success! What I enjoyed most about CityCamp was working in small groups to discuss using technology as a tool for governments. The potential is unlimited! We are very fortunate to have such a strong foundation for an emerging technology industry in the region. I hope that Raleigh will continue to explore the potential for technology as a tool, and continue to lead the way in innovation! CityCamp was a great way to encourage that process. Thanks to everyone who made CityCamp happen!


I hope everyone enjoyed the busy weekend as much as I did!
