Welcome! The World Wide Web Consortium invites all who work within governments or those who work or engage with governments to participate in the many opportunities sponsored by W3C and the Web community.

W3C's eGovernment Activity currently offers speakers, discussion forums, educational information, and guidelines focused on helping governments to publish data in open, standards-based formats so that information can be more easily accessed on the Web.

Meetings This Week

February 22, 2010

A few weeks ago, the IG started a set of parallel task force project groups. Here’s what’s on the calendar for this week:

Wednesday, 24 Feb, 8am ET Data Management

  • Topic TBD

Thursday, 25 Feb, 10am ET Linked Data Outreach

  • Brainstorm on technical scope: what are the pressing technical issues for government linked data, and what guidance can we provide?

Friday, 26 Feb, 9am ET Linked Data Demo

  • Topic TBD

Friday, 26 Feb, 3pm ET Social Media

  • Review and determine the top 5 essential best practice for use of Social Media by government.

The IG and the other project groups are not scheduled to meet this week.

These groups are just getting started, so if you want some say in their direction (and possibly eternal glory), now is a good time to get involved.
