League of California Cities tries to kill open government bill

One of my proudest accomplishments over the past year has been the progress on SB 1002, the California Open Data Standard. I helped draft a framework for the bill along with open government advocates from around California and the world. Sadly, the lobbying group the League of California Cities is trying to gut the bill and is smearing open data advocates in the process.

Adriel Nation - Technologies for democracy; social media for social good


I am writing to ask you to join Adriel Nation, my network for promoting emerging technologies for better government, democracy and self-governance and for sharing opportunities to help charities around the world. All  of my blogging is now on this new platform, powered by NationBuilder.
Adriel Nation has two key focuses: promoting emerging technologies for improving democratic and self governance (Gov 2.0 RadioNationBuildercivic tech events and more); and using social networks to create awareness of and raise funds for organizations doing social good (XBAR Gives and more).
If you join, you will also have the opportunity to suggest organizations we should be supporting and to make other suggestions for the focus of Adriel Nation.
Thank you!
