Open parliaments and pollies weekend in Sydney

Open Australia is organising a Hackfest in Sydney on 21-22 September focusing on parliaments, politicians and elections. The event is timed to coincide with the Global Legislative Openness Week (GLOW) an initiative of the Legislative Openness Working Group of the Open Government Partnership. Good to see this engagement in advance of the much considered issue of whether Australia is to join the OGP.

I've lamented-here and here and here, three of many posts on the subject- that our parliaments and parliamentarians are still to fully and eagerly embrace the information age, so interested to see what those who put their minds to it can do with what is available.
