“We should do one ourselves,” seemed the general consensus, so we decided to make it happen. In the meantime, technology and Open Government savvy ACT Senator, Kate Lundy began her Public Sphere events. A number of the people interested in the idea of a Government 2.0 Camp Australia became involved in that.
Sense has thankfully prevailed (never in doubt, really) and we’ve decided to combine the Government 2.0 Camp Australia with the second of Kate Lundy’s Public Sphere events.
And we have…
Public Sphere Camp! It’s a hybrid – a BarCamp with some scheduled speakers and times in an effort to attract both the Cathedral and the Bazaar.
It will be held at Parliament House in Canberra on 22 June 2009. Any and all are welcome if they have something to contribute to the debate. There’s just a small issue – limited space and therefore limited seats. So, sign up ASAP if you’re interested.
