Great stuff is happening in Ethekwini. A new open data group called
Open Data Durban has formed. I presented at their second meeting this
Tuesday. We had a fairly good turnout.

Also exciting is that the City of Ethekini is currently working on an
open data policy. We're hoping to see the first draft in the next few
months. I have a feeling that they are going to give Cape Town a run
for their money. If you are based in Durban, I recommend getting in
touch or joining the ODD meetup group for event updates

I wrote a short blog post about the event here:
