Minnebar 8 Presentation - Civic Hacking and Open Data
About a month ago I gave an introductory presentation about civic hacking, open data, Open Twin Cities, and some events we have coming up at Minnebar - Minnesota's version of BarCamp (and one of the biggest in the country.) A few days ago Minnebar put videos up of all the presentations.
The slides used in this presentation can be downloaded here.
As I said, it was an introductory presentation, with the first 10 or 15 minutes attempting to explain what civic hacking and open data are. The audience was a mix of Minnesota's tech scene, with a slight bias towards small businesses and start-ups. So this is largely a non-technical talk designed for a room that includes developers, designers, and project managers, and entrepreneurs.
