August Meetup

This month will be a bit shorter and less formal.

6:30pm to 7:00pm will be social time. We have lots of different people in the group and this will give time to talk, mingle, and get to know everyone who is working together.

At approximately 7, Chris will give a run down of the website up to this point and we can talk about what to do next. If any of the other projects have updates to present, we will make time for those as well as discussing upcoming events like Strange Loop and "Let's Talk".

We will try to wrap up the discussion part of the evening by 8:00pm.

Bring your laptop, and if you want to hang around afterwards we can do some hacking (especially content) on the new website.

 

Also, I am interested in recruiting future speakers for our events. If you know anyone who is using creating, disseminating, or using open data day to day who would be interested in talking about their challenges and achievements, please have them get ahold of me.

    I have some progress on not only a meta-presence about our group, but something to track organizations, contacts within organizations, and related data sources.

    http://opendatastl.org/w/

    You can view "organizations" and "data sources" (language TBD) and can add new entires using a form. Each entry uses a shared from/template combo allowing for quick additions and modifications.

    Each property of an entry is semantically linked. When you add a new data source and associate it to an organization, you can quickly see a list of all data sources from said org.

    Example: http://opendatastl.org/w/index.php?title=Open_Data_STL

    The site is running a little slow at the moment. I'm working on figuring out a better caching solution. Feel free to create an account and poke around.

    If anyone would like to meet between now and the next meeting for a demo or chat, please let me know. Otherwise I hope we can spend some of the time (If that's ok with our ringleader Brett) talking about this topic.

      Oh, and we can definitely set aside a good chunk of time for the website this month.

      It's not coming up blacklisted for me, but it might be fore you, it's off frequency signals, like a ham operators wiki. http://wiki.radiorefe...­

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
