My first post to the list, allow me to introduce myself, I'm Lucy
Chambers - one of the community coordinators at OKFN, working
alongside Kat Braybrooke, who set up this list :)
My colleague Laura and I will be visiting 3 cities in India next
month, Bangalore (last week in July), Mumbai (first week in August)
and Delhi (second week in August) and would love to meet up with any
data-enthusiasts in those cities while we are there!
We are also thinking about possibly trying to organise some small
get-togethers while we are out there e.g. a 'Data-Days' or hackday
with some local data to bring people together who are interested in
these types of projects. I work on a project called OpenSpending.org
and am particularly keen to get a group together who are interested in
government money, taxes, subsidies etc. Laura works on a new
initiative called the 'School of Data' - http://schoolofdata.org/ so
is interested in meeting people to find out what they would be most
interested in learning data-skills-wise.
Meetups could be formal or very informal so please let us know if this
would be of interest by responding to this email:) We're also looking
for suggestions for places where these meetups could be held.
We are planning on attending the Fifth Elephant event in Bangalore
July 27th-28th, so will be happy to meet up with people there, but
maybe it makes sense to have something additional?
Btw - regarding Fifth Elephant both of us have submitted talks on our topics:
OpenSpending - http://bit.ly/M3wXo2
School of Data - http://bit.ly/M3x9DC
We'd love to hear from you as to what you would be most interested in
hearing about as part of those talks - as we're happy to focus in more
closely on topics people find most interesting. I'm also hunting some
good local spending / subsidies data to work with in the session. If
anyone has any ideas, please do send me links!
Looking forward to hearing from you,
All the best,
