    Reboot Democracy Hackathon

    Portland is one of the original Gov 2.0 cities. Indeed, projects pdxAPI, GTFS, civicapps.org made Portland a cradle of civic technology. Come reclaim your civic clout this Sunday!.


    Code for America Fellows Max Ogden and Jessica Lord are here to help.

    WHO: Civic Hackers, City Reps, Developers, Designers, etc — anyone with the passion to make Portland better!


    Code for America led project: Finding out information from city government shouldn’t be difficult.

    Imagine a tool that allows citizens to stay informed about the city issues they care about most.The CfA team will focus on building an app that aggregates all public information—such as hearings, elections, city hall meetings and more—and allows individuals to easily digest and filter that information, and provide input on those topics that interest them. Ideally, the app’s functionality would allow you to: Get alerts about a specific location (like your house, a reoccuring nuisance in your neighborhood, or your neighborhood in general). Get alerts about specific policy outcomes that you care about. Ie. Bicycle policy. Get alerts about policy outcomes tied to a specific location (neighborhood)

    IndieWebCamp
    through
    Esri R&D Center (aka Geoloqi HQ)

    Rather than posting content on many third-party silos of data, we should all begin owning our own data that we're creating. Publish short status updates on your own domain, and syndicate to Twitter. Publish photos on your own domain, syndicate to Flickr, etc, etc.

    This is the basis of the "Indie Web" movement. We'll get together for two days to talk about what has been done in the field, and where still needs to be done. There will be workshops and breakout sessions the second day.

    For some reading on the subject, browse Tantek's documentation of his projects like Whistle and Falcon, two projects he created as an effort to begin owning his own published content.

    Hosted by Tantek Çelik, Aaron Parecki, Amber Case and Crystal Beasley.

    RSVP on the IndieWebCamp Wiki.

    WhereCampPDX 5 Kickoff Party

    IMPORTANT: Please register for FREE at http://wherecamppdx5.eventbrite.com/

    Join us for the Fifth Annual WhereCampPDX Kickoff Party this Friday at Geoloqi HQ. Beers and banter will be provided. With the growing numbers of geonerds this weekend, we're hoping to acquire more space just downstairs at either Lotus Room or Nedspace. Watch this space for details.

    WhereCampPDX is a free, volunteer-created unconference for anyone interested in geography and technology. This year’s event will be happening October 12th-14th, with a full day of unconference sessions at Metro Regional Center on the 13th.

    An unconference is a conference planned by the participants. We convene together, plan sessions, and break-out into the proposed session discussions and activities. This gives everyone an opportunity to bring to the table the things that interest them the most, and talk about emerging topics that are still new and exploratory. We value open participation, providing access to new voices, and lowering barriers to participation. As a result, the event is driven by the interests and talents of the participants.

    To attend, you'll need to be signed up at http://wherecamppdx5.eventbrite.com/ by the party time!
