Hello All, 

I am Cristiana Sappa, LAPSI Thematic Network Project Manager. 

Two by-invitation LAPSI meetings will be held in Warsaw on October 19th and 20th. Then on October 22nd morning we would like to organize a legal session within the ODC (maybe on licenses issues or on public law obstacles to access and re-use). Any suggestion is welcome. Of course, should other projects wish to co-organize the legal session, we would be very happy to cooperate with CC, ODC and others.  

Kind Regards, 

Cristiana Sappa

Hi all,

We're booking venues in Warsaw for around 17-26th October. Many
partner organisations have expressed an interest in organising day or
half day satellite events to the Open Government Data Camp, which will
take place on 20-21st October. The slots are:

  * 17-19th October - pre-camp events (Monday to Wednesday)
  * 20-21st October - camp (Thursday/Friday)
  * 22-26th October - post-camp events (Saturday to Wednesday)

Partnerships on satellite events are *strongly* encouraged - both to
reduce organisational overhead, and to encourage people to work with
people they haven't worked with before (co-organising a satellite
event is a great way to get to know someone!).

For example, some folks from the European Journalism Centre,
OpenCorporates, OpenSpending.org and Scraperwiki have started planning
for a workshop on data journalism and EU spending data on 24-26th.

A few hypothetical suggestions:

  * OpenCorporates and Sunlight Labs might want to run a workshop or
codesprint on company names
  * Scraperwiki and mySociety might want to run a scraping workshop on
parliamentary information
  * Civic Commons and Open Cities might want to run a day on open
source tools for cities
  * Creative Commons, Open Data Commons and LAPSI might want to run a
day on legal tools for open data
  * Transparency Hackers and the London Datastore might want to do
something on organising hackdays

What do people think? Any ideas? Any suggestions/preferences for
dates? I'd quite like to do something on international open data
principles [1] on the 19th October. ;-)
