Talk is cheap. Do you know what it takes to implement an open data initiative for your local government? Do you know what you’d do with all that data once you had it? Would you like a chance to help think through strategies for your government?

This session is intended to gather transparency advocates, government data owners/shepherds, technologists and devs, gov 2.0 fans, privacy advocates, policy analysts and wonks and anyone else with an interest in what it takes to create an open government, access to user-friendly data. The BOF will provide a friendly, collaborative forum for government IT management and staff and the greater open source community to brainstorm ideas and issues, barriers, concerns and solutions to the increasing public demand for access to useful government data. Local initiatives underway will also be represented.

This session has been designed to complement the session “Transparent, Collaborative, Participatory – Grass Roots Implementation of the Open Government Directive which is scheduled for Tuesday, June 1, 2010 from 2:30 – 3:15pm in Steel
