With just about a month to go until Open Data Day things are going well. There are quite a few cities that have been added to the open data day wiki.
This year we thought we would try something new. On January 21st we are going to host a Get Ready For Open Data Day 2014! Google hangout.
The goal of the hangout is to help people thinking about organizing an event in their city get a sense of what others doing, ask questions about what has worked in the past, and just learn more about what is possible on the day.
We’ll be hosting a 30-60 minute event on Tuesday, January 21 (at 11:00 am EST/ 8:00 PST/ 16:00 GMT /17:00 CEST) with myself, Heather Leson and Beatrice Martini focused on:
- What is Open Day Day – History
- Planning tips
- Open Q&A
There is likely a limit to how many people we can host on the hangout so please let us know if you’d like to participate.
And if you are interested in connecting with others – especially those who have run open data day events before – please consider joining the mailing list!
