Building Community at CA Data Camp

Saturday, Citizen Space in San Francisco hosted the first California Data Camp and DataSF App contest. The event was a great mix of journalists, developers and govies, with an unconference and on-site app-building competition. Sponsor liveblogged the event. You can also check out short videos from Craig Newmark and GovFreshTV.
I’ve also thrown together a list of active tweeters from the event.
In the morning session, I talked about bringing “Citizen 2.0” (Facebook group here) social media trainings to traditional activists and groups.
CA Data was a powerful event in that it brought together several sectors around common ideals of collaboration and open government.
Social media and Web 2.0 tools are powerful only in pursuit of a mission. Environmental groups, political clubs, Chambers of Commerce, what kind of traditional partners should the wired to share embrace?
