Hacking the Legislature with BytesFree.org

Moderated by: Ilan Rabinovitch / John Mark Walker
BoF
Location: F150

It is becoming increasingly vital to the success of open-source that elected representatives be properly informed about issues relating to open-standards and access to information. Issues such as the DMCA, DRM, copyright/patent reform, and information access pose very serious risks to open source and the freedom of information.

The BytesFree team will be meeting at OSCON for to discuss and develop tools that can be used in the creation of open-source voter information resources. BytesFree focus will be on Information Rights, however these open-source tools may apply to other groups wishing to build resources for other voter information projects.
