Just a quick reminder that the Hackday for the Open Knowledge Indicator will be on the 23rd of August, from 10 AM to 11 PM (UTC+1).
I’m sorry if some cannot make it at this date but I hope you will be able to join at a later stage – this certainly doesn’t mean you’re excluded!

We’ll be setting up a Etherpad – for joining, please add my Skype address guoxu_voip so I can put you on the group chat.

Open Data Index Hackday

Dirk Heine - July 22, 2011 in Conference, Hackathon, Open Knowledge Index

This contribution is from Dirk Heine, Working Group Advisor at Open Economics

In the OpenEconomics phone conference yesterday we decided to go forward with building a cross-country Open Data Index (see previous discussion). We now need everyone to sign up to participate for a 1 day collaborative index construction. On this day we will all try to already finish a preliminary version to test the concept.

What day would be best for you? Please participate in this doodle to determine it.

Collaboration will be online with everyone contributing from wherever you are based. We need people with different skill sets: data researchers, programmers, economists, people generally knowledgeable about sources of open data and people with aesthetics skills. So please do participate!

A note on the timing: There will be people from various time zones participating, so please try to accomodate the time window as good as possible: It is just hard to match people across time zones so we all need to be a bit flexible to make a collaborative production of the OKF Open Data Index possible.
