Hi everyone,

I just joined the steering committee, and I'll be be helping to coordinate
the academic track at the Camp, along with my colleague David Robinson.

By way of introduction, I'm a Ph.D. student in computer science at
Princeton, and affiliated with the Center for Information Technology Policy
(CITP) here. My open government projects have included our paper Government
Data and the Invisible Hand, the RECAP project to liberate U.S. federal
court records, and the FedThread site for the U.S. Federal Register. More
recently, I've been looking into the mechanics of the legislative process in
the U.S. Congress, and how changes to the process could spur the development
of new useful transparency tools.

David and I will be reaching out to academics soon to participate in this
track at the Camp. The track will likely consist of short talks and possibly
longer workshops. I'll be focusing on the technical side of the program,
while David will be focusing on the legal side. In the meantime, if you are
an academic, or have academics in mind who you think would like to
participate in the program, please get in touch with us!

I look forward to meeting all of you at the Camp!
