Gavin Newsom talking California state tech on Monday

With the state struggling to implement on-time and on-budget computer systems that perform as promised, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom is scheduled for an online interview to talk tech next week.

The former mayor of San Francisco, who is running for re-election as back-up governor, will make an appearance on Techleader.TV, Monday at 11:30 a.m.

Newsom will be talking about his new book, “Citizenville: How to Take the Town Square Digital and Reinvent Government.”

The web-based show, hosted by former California state technology chief John Thomas Flynn, will carry the interview live and then archive it for on-demand viewing. Previous TechLeader guests have included Carlos Ramos, director of the California Department of Technology, and Chris Hughes, deputy director and chief information officer for the Department of Health Care Services.
