      RT @hubert I have to laugh and shake my head at Smith calling it a "Miracle on the Praries". No, you were leading in the polls pretty much the whole time. You're in a strongly conservative province. I mean, if you're saying that it's a miracle that the majority of Albertans chose to ignore your […]

      RT @blacksam I’ve been getting more into the game Gaslands with my son and also with adult friends. It’s a Mad Max-esque tabletop game where you’re expected to create your own game pieces by kitbashing with toy cars. I already have all the crafting, painting and 3d printing supplies I need from my other wargaming […]

      RT @geniusmusing @lnxw48a1 I have my own workaround for just this issue. I raise my hand to the "Stop/Hold" position. Get to a point where I can stop and leave myself a note on the next thing to do. Then let them interrupt me. I have even done this to my former boss and the […]

@OpenDataWR hosts Open Data Day Event — Saturday, 22 Feb 2014 at @Kwartzlab #ODD2014

Open Data Waterloo Region

 

Continuing with the theme of my personal social calendar — On Saturday, 22 February 2014 I’ll be at Open Data Waterloo Region‘s Open Data Day Event, held at Kwartzlab again this year. There’s a schedule, suggested projects, dataset lists and more on Waterloo Region‘s page on the International Open Data Day Hackathon wiki.

Last year William and I started a project to add OpenStreetMap links to Thunderbird’s Lightning calendar. We didn’t finish, so that’s one project to work on this year. Also, since last year I’ve been dabbling with the Food Premise Inspection Data to add the restaurant location data to OpenStreetMap. And I hope to be taking lots of pictures and video of the event.

Come join us! Here’s the bumf:
