-- TransparencyCamp is an unconference
for opengov: an event where, each year, journalists, developers, technologists, policy-makers, government officials, students, academics, wonks, and everyone in between gather to share their knowledge about how to use new technologies and policies to make our government really work for the people -- and to help our people work smarter with our government.
As an "unconference,"
TransparencyCamp emphasizes the important contributions that each and every attendee brings with them into the sessions, workshops, and conversations associated with this event. In fact, attendees (yes, all of them) are brought into the process of making the schedule for the conference with the organizers and are encouraged to step up and lead sessions themselves.
As the year 2012 is bursting with major questions about government transparency, openness, and accountability, we hope that participants take the opportunity to use TransparencyCamp as a platform for to get (or at least get close to) answers. To kick start this process, the developers out there should check out more information about our sister event, the Voting Information Project Hackathon, set for April 30th.
