Hope to see fellow citycampers at these two upcoming events!
‘Third Thirsdays SF’ is a new unstructured monthly after-work meetup for folks interested in tech and civics. It’s supported by CityCampSF, GovFresh, Gov 2.0 Radio and OpenSF, and happens every third Thursday of the month at 1655 Market St., 5:30 to 8 p.m. You can become a fan of Third Thursdays on Facebook to keep up with the latest news.
Also, our friends at OpenPlans are putting on a special unconference focused on transit on March 19-20. Here’s information that the TransportationCamp organizers asked us to pass on to you:
Please join us at TransportationCamp West in San Francisco, March 19-20.
We are pleased to invite you to TransportationCamp, a free unconference bringing together transportation professionals, technologists, and others interested in the intersection of urban transportation and technology. Join thinkers and doers in the fields of transportation and technology for a weekend of learning, debating, connecting, and creating. TransportationCamp is presented by OpenPlans and the Rockefeller Foundation, with support from CityCamp SF. More details.
Registration is free and open to the public. Register for free now, and help spread the word.
Transportation is a major metropolitan issue, with direct impacts on economic strength, environmental sustainability, and social equity. This event will bridge conversations and connections between agencies, vendors, developers and public planners to (hopefully) resolve city and community needs. It will offer an in-person and ongoing forum for the discussion of policies, practices, and techniques.
So far, we’ve collected suggestions for over twenty possible topics, ranging from realtime information to legal issues. Add your ideas here. You can follow TransportationCamp on Twitter as well.
