SF Mayoral Hopefuls Will Gather to Talk Open Gov

BY Nancy Scola | Thursday, April 14 2011

GovFresh's Luke Fretwell has an announcement: "Eight major San Francisco mayoral candidates will participate in SFOpen 2011, a townhall forum focused specifically on open government, citizen engagement and leveraging technology to build better government." The event is schedule for June 16th, at the San Francisco headquarters of WordPress/Automattic, and is invitation only, though it will be livestreamed. Major tech world figure Mitch Kapor will moderate.

Sure, this is San Francisco, but it's probably a safe bet that this won't be the last time we "open government" as an advocacy sector courted by politicians running in 2012.
