Journalists, Gov. 2.0 advocates, computer-aware reporters, and citizen watchdog groups will be gathering at Montclair State University on May 15. This Open Data Summit will be focused on sharing public data– strategies for governments, tools for public engagement, and shop talk on best practices.
Confirmed speakers include: Mark Headd (Chief Data Officer, Philadelphia), Tom Meagher (Data Editor at Digital First Media), Ben Lesser (investigative journalism consultant for NJ News Commons), and Heather Taylor (Communications Director at The Citizens Campaign).
This is an all-day event (9:30 – 5:00 PM), and we’re planning on being there.
