Upcoming Seattle Open Data Day

Upcoming Seattle Open Data Day

I’ve been helping Seth Vincent (Code for Seattle) organize Seattle Open Data Day with Will Scott at the University of Washington.

I strongly encourage you all to go to Seattle Open Data Day, an unconference on open data and civic technology.  Held at the UW Computer Science Department on February 21, the goal is to continue the conversation on civic technology issues around Seattle.

Some of the topics we hope to discuss are:

  • Defining what we as a city/region want from open data in the future, and how the government & companies can help.
  • Making it easy for everyone to participate in open data and civic technology.
  • Where open data should be used to make and improve decisions.
