Meet.22: HacKnight (12 June)

 

odhk-meet-logo-hacknights_22

Continuing our series of “hack nights” for Open Data enthusiasts to get together and work on open data projects. Come out and meet other Open Data enthusiasts! No you don’t need to be techie, but if you are, and you have a project, join us and get working on them with others! And if you’re not techie, come out, check out the projects, meet others to talk open data, maybe plan a project, strategise!

HOW IT WORKS:

  • You can present an idea – new or existing, for others to join you on;
  • You can listen to the other ideas and projects, ask questions and join them; or
  • if you have specialized skills, you can float around and offer your expertise.

That’s it! (more…)

At this event we will discuss HK Government Information and data – can we share it, repurpose it, build on it? What are the limitations, risks? Will government information become public domain and Creative Commons Zero (CC0) like in the United States? If not, why not?

He serves on the Digital 21 Strategy Advisory Committee of the Hong Kong Government, the School of Engineering Advisory Committee HKUST, the Technical Advisory Board of the Packet Clearing House. He is a member of DimSumLabs and the W3C Web Payments Community Group.
