Exploring The White House's Servers: Open Data Speaker David Eaves
On his blog, he shares links about various events taking place on the 23rd and encourages his readers to participate. He explains that one of the most exciting by-products of the event is that many government organizations have made an effort to be involved. "How cool would it be to hack on data at the White House?" Eaves writes. The fact that the United States government is opening its doors, even if only a little, for people to access its data is extremely exciting. In his talks, Eaves discusses not only the need to move into a more accessible information age, but what concerns need to be addressed when we do so. A public policy and strategy expert, Eaves helps his audience navigate the seemingly overwhelming advancements in technology, and uncover the vast benifits that open access to information can bring. He works with a myriad of different clients to help us enter into a more transparent world—and outlines what we have to do to make the process go smoothly.
