Sunshine Week a shining example

It's Sunshine Week again in the US:
a national initiative to promote a dialogue about the importance of open government and freedom of information. Participants include news media, civic groups, libraries, nonprofits, schools and others interested in the public’s right to know. 
Terrific for them.

Having been there a year ago, here I am this time in Sydney green with envy at the leadership, enthusiasm, widespread participation and financial support from the Knight Foundation and others that makes this happen year after year.

And left to imagine how interesting some of these events listed for Washington will be as the week rolls on. 

Who, what, when, where and how could we ever make something like this happen here?
