A public/private stakeholders group convened by City of Philadelphia representatives charged with moving forward good government initiatives is hosting a day-long forum to develop action for the future.

The OpenAccessPhilly forum, called “Crowdsourcing at the Intersection,” will be held Friday, Oct. 28 at the University City Science Center Quorum space. The winners of the OpenDataRace are scheduled to be announced at then.

RSVP for the free event here.

It’s “a forum to discover what the City of Philadelphia and its citizens are doing at the intersection of civic innovation/participation and technology,” said Jeff Friedman, the Manager of Civic Innovation and Participation in the Mayor’s office and a original organizer of the OpenAccessPhilly group. “And how we can all continue to translate both our personal and professional passions, connections and projects into public service for the benefit of the entire city.”

The OpenAccessPhilly group followed the Digital Philadelphia plan from the city’s newly renamed Office of Innovation and Technology. Friedman, with OIT project manager Andrew Buss and private consultant Paul Wright, conceived the group.

In its current form, the group includes several hundred local technology leaders on an email mailing list and hosts smaller twice monthly update meeting. It was out of the OpenAccessPhilly group that the OpenDataPhilly.org project was born.
