OpenUpstate/OpenDataDay2014 on Github

We now have an OpenDataDay2014 repo ready on Github. We'll we using that before, during, and after the event to share data, docs, designs, and code. Grab a ticket (they're free!) and we'll get you added as a Team member.

We're actively looking for open data--especially related to South Carolina or the Upstate (or the cities therein) specifically. If you've got some--or are up for making some!--we'd love to have you join us on the Wiki even if you can't make it to the event.

See you Saturday!

Open Data Day is a gathering of citizens in cities around the world to write applications, liberate data, create visualizations and publish analyses using open public data to show support for and encourage the adoption open data policies by the world's local, regional and national governments.

We're bringing this to Greenville, SC (hosted at OpenWorks) to explore open data and how local developers can contribute tools, tech, and talks on the topic.

We'll be using Cloudant and Apache CouchDB to manage, MapReduce, and munge open data sources including Comics.org, MusicBrainz.org, OpenLibrary.org, DBPedia (data from Wikipedia), and anything else we can find.
