Thanks for the mention, Sarah.
For issues about the ethics, privacy and security risks around data use
in the advocacy context, do take a look at the Responsible Data Forum
(holding the first event next week):
We're also looking into an event focused on responsible development data
in collaboration with Bond, OKFN and Privacy International, for London
in early Spring. We'll be having an open planning call on that Monday or
Tuesday next week, and I'll drop a line to the list with deets on that.

>     A Theory of Change
> The programme for the 2014 edition of the festival is fuelled by a
> *theory of change. *Using this theory as our outline, the event provides
> an ideal opportunity for the open movement to come together to co-create
> the roadmap that will guide its next steps.____
> *Our Theory: we believe that Knowledge, Tools and Society are the levers
> of Change*. As such, Knowledge, Tools and Society will be the three
> streams that form the architecture of the programme.____
> *Knowledge*: Knowledge /informs/ change. At OKFestival we're keen to
> discuss ways of unlocking, expanding and sharing knowledge through open
> access, open research data, open educational resources, open science,
> data journalism and campaigning, data visualisation and literacy.____
> *Tools*: Tools /enable/ change. We'll be discussing facilitating the
> flow of knowledge through non profit technology, open source software,
> open hardware, design, architecture and urban planning.____
> *Society*: The group(s) who /effect/ change. Topics may include
> designing institutions, building communities and protecting
> environments. Additionally, powering economies through open government,
> transparency, open tech businesses, open development, open education,
> open culture, open sustainability and open economy will feature on the
> programme. Security and privacy-related topics also fit into this
> stream.____
> The festival will weave together these three streams of open knowledge
> innovation and impact. Each session will go deep within its realm as
> well as identifying interdisciplinary features that span different
> domains or discipline.
