Interesting to see the agenda for tomorrow’s OpenGov BC event scheduled to take place in Victoria BC Canada, an even organized by OpenGov West – see http://opengovwest.org/ See @opengovwest on Twitter – recall, openGov Seattle took place earlier this year in Seattle, since then OGW has grown to 10 Open Gov West meetups across the Western US and Canada.
So, what is OGW? From the event planners, Open Gov West (OGW) is a network of open government supporters and practitioners, working together to foster progress on open government issues and technology throughout the US and Canada. Tomorrow’s event brings a full schedule of speakers and panels, designed to enlighten and stimulate discussion on such topics as the future of open, access by the community to government information and FOI, and finally, the issue of citizen participation (Crowd sourcing) and social media will also be addressed.
The event runs at U. Vic on November 10 and if there’s room, yours truly will be there! See http://opengovwest.org/open-gov-bc/
