Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak was in Asia last week, meeting with Chinese officials and promoting his city as a business and tourism destination. So he couldn't speak at the kickoff of our Managing Technology conference in his fair city.

Governing's Ellen Perlman caught Rybak's appearance on her Flip camera (Rybak's presence was so unanticipated that Ellen's video actually starts in a little bit after the mayor had begun speaking).
