WASHINGTON, DC – The Sunlight Foundation will host its
fourth TransparencyCamp from April 30 – May 1 in Chevy
Chase, MD. This “unconference” brings together government
officials, technologists, journalists and grassroots
advocates to share best practices on the ways new
technologies and effective policies can make our government
really work for the people.
TransparencyCamp will showcase the progress being made by
these groups at all levels of government -- in the U.S. and
around the globe -- through engaging keynotes,
“ignite”-style sessions and creative workshops. Featured
participants include: Kevin Curry of CityCamp,
Erika Fowler of the Wesleyan Media Project,
Nick Grossman of Code of America, Noel
Hidalgo, former director of technology innovation for the
New York State Senate, David Moore of
www.OpenGovernment.org and Jason
Williams, an open government activist in Utah.
More details about the event, as well as a live web
stream of featured sessions, are available at
