RSVP to "Hangout" during White House Safety Datapalooza - Tue Jan 14, Official Media Advisory

From: Steven C.
Sent on: Friday, January 10, 2014 3:19 PM
Next Tuesday, Jan. 14 starting at 9 a.m. Eastern, the White House and
Federal agencies are hosting an exciting open government event:


"Safety Datapalooza, featuring innovators from the private, nonprofit,
and academic sectors  who have utilized freely available government
data to build products, services, and apps to advance public safety in
creative and powerful ways. The event will feature safety data
resources in areas ranging from transportation to food to consumer
product safety, as well as tools to improve disaster preparedness and
emergency response and to help empower Americans with information to
make smarter, safer choices."


After the three hour webcast, those at the in-person event will be
connecting via small group brainstorms.

Why not the rest of us too?

Time for a virtual video "hangout" to go in-depth beyond the pithy
#safetydata hashtag.

E-Democracy.org is working with folks at the MIT Media Lab, the Smart
Chicago Collaborative, and a bunch of volunteer facilitators to host
...

*** Unofficial White House Safety Datapalooza Live Video Hangout ***

We are using a network of Google Hangouts combined with MIT's
experimental Unhangout tool.

RSVP for limited slots now:

This unofficial hangout will center on a 45 minute brainstorming
dialogue being fed into short discussion summaries that will be
forwarded to interested White House and government staff we have
engaged directly in recent weeks.

There are a mix of general and thematic break-outs based on interest.

Our video "lobby" will open at 12Noon and officially start our program
at 12:30 p.m. Eastern (for those in the UK, that's 7:30 p.m.)

As official government links emerge we are also linking them here
(webcast, Twitter, and more):
