Attending (and recording at) Open Web Vancouver on June 11th and 12th

Unexpectedly but delightfully, I’ll be attending Open Web Vancouver at the brand new Vancouver Convention Centre tomorrow, Thursday and Friday. Open Web Vancouver are gracious sponsors of ChangeCamp, and though it is a big last minute, I am stoked to be able to learn more about the tech behind realizing the dream of the open Internet.

I’ll be shooting video and taking pictures. I’m also tickled pink at two particular sessions:

  • Friday just before lunch, David Eaves and Andrea Reimer will be talking about the City’s open standards, open data and open source initiative. It will be the first time I’ve heard Andrea speak on the topic outside of council chambers, so I’m looking forward to hearing her ideas.
  • Shari Wallace, the Head of IT at the City of Vancouver, will be leading a session on Friday afternoon to learn from other organizations on making their data available through their existing IT infrastructure.

I’m also happy to see a multitude of other friendlies around town presenting, such as Momentum Magazine, Irwin Oostindie from W2 Woodwards, and Luke Closs.

I’ll be darting in and out throughout the day to media geek, but come say hi if you see me! :)
