Transparency Camp promotes open government

Discussing ways to promote a more open government is the focus of a two-day event scheduled from May 4-5 at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. Created by the Sunlight Foundation, the Transparency Camp invites journalists, developers, technologists, policymakers, other government officials, students, academics, wonks, grassroots advocates, and anyone else interested in sharing their ideas to attend the workshops and conversations, with the event's schedule created and shaped by the attendees, according to a foundation press release.

The cost of the event is $30, and press passes are available. Last year, 400 people attended the event; organizers expect 500 this year. For more information visit the website.
