Special coverage of a campaign event for former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley in San Francisco 8/20/15, with comments from PBC…Here’s a recording of O’Malley speaking to a group of young tech workers and entrepreneurs at a restaurant in San Francisco. His talk was preceded by a startup pitch competition–a la Shark Tank–where 3 people pitched for funding for tech startups. The topic was innovation and technology, and O’Malley is very comfortable in this space; you will hear him reference his use of data in government decision making.
Disclosure: PBC’s niece, Hannah Burke, is a member of O’Malley’s campaign staff. Your humble host received a bumper sticker and 2 glasses of wine at this event. He did not actually get to meet the candidate, but has requested an in-depth interview with him.
