Open Data Day is coming up, and here in D.C., there’s not enough time in one day to fit in all the workshops, hackathons and discussions the local civic hacking community needs, so it will be held over two days.

Since it will be cold and snowy this week, watch out for rescheduled events. The DC Tech Meetup, for instance, has been postponed for later this month.
