This month's regularly-scheduled Minneapolis meetup time happens to correspond with a cool community event about open data. So, instead of meeting up in Minneapolis, we'll be heading across the river to Rondo Library to join a "Data Party" event! At the Data Party, we will:
+ Find out about the use and collection of data we create every day with hands-on activities
+ Hear from community users about how they use open data to share stories and inform community organizing projects
+ Pick up a guide and learn about the City of Saint Paul’s Open Information Portal
The event goes from 5-7pm. (It should be fine to show up a little late, for folks who are coming from work or other activities.) After that, anyone who's interested is welcome to stick around for dinner at Los Ocampo just across the street!
You can RSVP here on Meetup so Open Twin Cities folks know who's coming and how to find each other. But if possible, please also indicate you are "Interested" or "Going" on the event's Facebook. This will help the event hosts get a sense of how many to expect: https://www.facebook.com/events/879773322374404/
