OpenGov, News Challenge project night w/CFA Brigade

Last Friday, Knight announced the 40 semifinalists of the Knight News Challenge. One Philly-related project, Possible City, is moving on in the competition.

Tuesday night we'll hear lightning talks about other project pitches from Philly and their plans for continuing the projects. We'll also have time for feedback and questions, and we'll close with a lightning talk from Michelle Lee, part of a team that won a Knight News Challenge grant earlier this year.

We'll start with a brief intro about #opengov and the News Challenge and lead into the lightning talks around 7pm. The talks will include.

After the short talks, we'll co-work in the generously donated Devnuts space with Code for America Philly Brigaders.

Also, free pizza!
