Technology lovers and data geeks from all over the country gathered in Washington, D.C. this week for the Gov 2.0 Expo to explore the power of data and its emerging role in government. We spoke with Google’s Natasha Wyatt about innovations that Google’s Crisis Response team has brought to the table. (Full disclosure: Google’s Gulf Coast oil leak page is utilizing a NewsHour/NPR video feed and the oil estimation widget.)

We’ll post more interviews from the Expo in the coming day.
