Coming to you from Warsaw, where satellite events are now begun and the main event is only 2 days away, we’re pleased to announce that Tom Steinberg will be joining us on Friday for his keynote! Get full programme details now, on the ogdcamp website.
Tom Steinberg is the founder and director of mySociety, a non-profit, open source organisation that runs many of the best-known democracy websites in the UK. These include the Parliamentary transparency website TheyWorkForYou, Freedom of Information hub WhatDoTheyKnow, and the self-explanatory FixMyStreet. Tom is currently spending most of his time trying to put mySociety onto a self-sustaining basis through development of commercial services, helping people outside the UK benefit from mySociety’s work, and showing how much he values mySociety’s unparalleled team of staff and volunteers.
Regarding his keynote, Steinberg writes,
“I will be making a case for a radical overhaul of the way the EU tries and fails to support digital innovation for social and democratic purposes.”
