We’re pleased to say that the Open Knowledge Foundation will be at SXSWi this year.

I’ll be on speaking on the Culture Hack panel alongside my colleagues from Europeana and the Digital Public Library of America talking about why libraries, galleries, archives and museums should open up their content and data and what’s being done to build a vibrant cultural commons around the digital public domain.

But I’ll also be there to meet you folk interested in other aspects of the Open Knowledge Foundation. Whether its open clinical trials or open spending data or some other aspect of the digital commons you’re interested in, I want to hear what you’re up to at SXSWi and if there’s something I should pop along to. I’d also like to hear from anyone interested in setting up regional activity in the US around open knowledge. Whether you’re thinking about starting an initiative to open up city bus timetables or visualising state spending data I’d love to hear what you’re up to and how the Open Knowledge Foundation can help.

I’ll be at the Idea Drop House on Saturday 9th March from 2pm with the Culture Hack panelists. More info is on the schedule here and the Culture Hack panel takes place on Monday 11th March at 11am. More info on the panel can be found here.

I’ll be Tweeting from @Noel_Mas and receiving emails on – so let me know what’s going on!
