Tracey P. Lauriault announces a great looking event for data activists, designers, and citizens in Ottawa next month:

The invite goes out to: Developers Designers Librarians Statisticians Citizens This is a wonderful opportunity to apply ones professional skills as a citizen to build something together!

There are also some Montrealers & Torontonians who may want to come and show their wares and re-purpose them for the city of Ottawa.

No agenda yet, but the ideas page is looking good. If you happen to attend, I might just see you there.
