Deadline to sign up by: 1st September 2006
19 people signed up, successful in 3 places
mySociety recently asked for ideas for a new civic hacking / democracy website. They're going to build the winning proposal. For more information, and to see the submitted ideas, go to: http://www.mysociety.org/proposals2006/a...
Soon mySociety will have whittled the 80 odd proposals down to a shortlist, by eliminating ones that don't meet the basic criteria. Then they would like people to meet up with others in towns across the country to talk about the shortlist. We'll all decide which idea is the best, or work out how one can be adapted to be the best.
Sign up, meet some other people interested in what mySociety does, and more importantly have some beer. Or coffee. Or orange juice if you're Matthew.
The exact location and date, some time early in September, will be agreed amongst people in each successful town.
Pledge originally made by Francis Irving, mySociety developer
