Cool.  I'd like to participate.  I do have some potential, unpredictable, conflicts looming.  Things that I think should be "freeer": 1. Financial information: can I get that stock quote into a real portfolio management software package? 2. Electric vehicle data: electric motor info (cost, power and manufacturer . . . ). You should send this out to the following groups:discuss at mug.orgmdlug@mdlug.org i3Detroit.org I know some interesting places to have meetings: i3Detroit.org and Canton Public Library.

Hi all,

There was a recent thread on my alma mater's mailing list about Open Data 
Day. Specifically how it is soon (this Saturday) and there isn't a group 
doing anything in A2 (to the best of our knowledge).


If anyone is interested in participating in Open Data Day in A2, let me 
know, I can find us a place to hack for the day. (Or, if you have a place 
that you think would be great, send me a note as well.)

Below is the email from si.all.open at umich.edu



Short notice, yes, but that doesn't mean we can't do anything here.

Also, I heard there was this dump of information last night that, while 
not strictly speaking "open data," would be interesting to do some 
analysis on. And you don't have to just look at attempted assassinations; 
there are some interesting bits talking about Intellectual Property as 
well: http://www.michaelgeist.ca/content/view/5483/125/

If there is sufficient interest (ie: more than just Andrew and I) I will 
find us a place to meet and hack on Saturday. While I'm not really a 
developer I'm pretty darn good at finding developers places to do there 
thing for an afternoon.

Please respond (either publicly or just to me) if you are interested in 
attending. No commitment is really necessary, I just want an idea if I'll 
be alone or not.
