Hi folks,

FYI my company has just submitted a proposal to the Knight News Challenge to deliver a free full open-source (Drupal-based) hosted data platform for local governments:

https://www.newschallenge.org/open/open-government/submission/hosted-open-data-portals-for-local-governments/

Please also consider posting your comments
and "applause" on the submission online to help generate awareness and
interest, and to help us to refine the proposal.  To support it, just click "applaud this" in the right-hand sidebar. You'll briefly register a free OpenIdeo account or login securely through Facebook Connect.

And/or please do pass the word-- here is a proposed sample tweet:

Hi folks,

We submitted to the Knight News Challenge today a proposal to deliver a free full open-source hosted data platform for local governments.  

https://www.newschallenge.org/open/open-government/submission/hosted-open-data-portals-for-local-governments/

Based on the Drupal-based "DKAN" variant of CKAN software, and combined with new low-cost multi-tenant Drupal hosting capabilities, we think it is the best way to rapidly cause an explosion of local government data to become published and discoverable online in a sustainable standards-compliant manner.  

We will be continuing to refine the proposal and would always love your offline feedback, and please also consider posting your comments and "applause" on the submission online to help generate awareness and interest.  Just click "applaud this" in the right-hand sidebar. You'll briefly register a free OpenIdeo account or login securely through Facebook Connect.  

And/or please do pass the word-- here is a proposed sample tweet:

Story
Introduction

At New Amsterdam Ideas, Andrew is currently developing projects that connect open government efforts across multiple political geographies, seeking to radically accelerate public access to government data, and increase operational efficiency within government through open-source, mobile and Cloud technology innovation. 

Andrew was the first ever Chief Information Officer for the New York State Senate from Jan 2009 - Jan 2011, working to open up the Senate’s legislative and administrative data for public access (for transparency), overhaul the Senate’s internal communications and collaboration infrastructure (for efficiency), and launch new Web 2.0 / social media technologies for the Senate (public participation). The new NYSenate.gov has been heralded as a leading example of the use of “Gov 2.0″ technologies by a legislature. Andrew was also recently elected by his peers to serve on the New York State CIO Leadership Council, and selected by GovTech as the 2010 New York State Public Sector CIO of the Year and by Information Week as one of the "Government CIO 50."

Previously, Andrew co-founded the NASA CoLab program to increase efficiency and transparency at NASA by building new partnerships between NASA and external communities of practice.

As an entrepreneur, he co-founded and directed business development for GoodStorm (now Zazzle), Trellon (Drupal consulting), and Moonfront (aerospace design), directed business strategy for CivicSpace Labs (Drupal non-profit), and consulted for Jaiku (now Google), N Space Labs (GIS) and the Craigslist Foundation.

In 2003, Andrew founded the largest local group in the Draft Clark movement, and later joined the Clark for President staff to help manage the campaign’s voter data and the open-source campaign software volunteer program.

Andrew is an Advisor or Director for OpenPlans, Civic Commons, Netroots Nation (Yearly Kos), the Space Generation Foundation, Yenza, and the New Organizing Institute.
