ACT, which last fall changed its name from the Federation of Government Information Processing Councils, has over the years sponsored many a government-industry function built around IT issues. This time, the only thing on the agenda was fun. (And a bit of networking, of course.)

Homeland Security Department CIO Steve Cooper takes a spin on the dance floor with his wife, Susie.
