Here is more information about the event. Hope to see a few Kanu members at the event!
City Camp Honolulu is sponsored by the City & County of Honolulu and has four main goals:
City Camp Honolulu is just the first step in an effort to explore and document ideas, lessons learned, best practices and patterns that can be implemented within the City & County of Honolulu and shared across municipalities. Our primary focus is the use of social/participatory media, mobile devices, linked open data and leveraging the Web as a platform for transparency, Open Government and civic engagement.
We’ve started a forum for topic sessions here http://citycamphnl.uservoice.com/forums/133940-ideas-for-city-camp-honolulu. Citizens can suggest and vote on topics. The day of the event we’ll take the most popular 12-14 and allow the attendees to vote on which topics they would like to use for our breakout sessions.
We have a Twitter Page http://twitter.com/#!/citycamphnl and a FB page http://www.facebook.com/CityCampHNL. This is our webpage where you can register to take part in this event. http://citycamphnl.org
We’re looking to raise enough money so that after covering our costs we have prize money for the best ideas that come out of the conference. We will be holding a follow up hack-a-thon on Jan 21st to take the ideas generated at City Camp to the development level. We’re going to allow teams to build prototypes of their ideas and present to a panel of judges. This is when we will select and award the best designs.
