‪I'm safe & sound, on the ground in California. My hotel has a room service robot. Automation of human delivery, with unclear circumspection.‬

We have some news about the future of one of our distribution lists and want to make sure you're along for the ride.

We've renamed the Sunlight Labs Google Group the Open Government Technology mailing list. Initially, we plan to use it to share news and coordinate action about open government data in the United States. You can sign up here, if you're not already on it:
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/opengovtech

Here's why: For the past few years the Federal government has held an inter-agency open data working group hosted by the General Services Administration, White House OMB, and OSTP. The group meets every other week and discusses updates over an internal government mailing list. Starting last year, the group began to hold quarterly public meetings with civil society participants that support open government. At the last public meeting of 2016, the meeting led to a discussion of how to facilitate ongoing conversations around open data between government agencies and civil society groups.

There's currently a broader federal open government working group that holds quarterly public meetings and has a public mailing list, but no civil society open government technology listserv. https://groups.google.com/forum/#%21forum/us-open-government

When members of the civil society proposed adopting this one, we thought the community of developers, advocates, journalists, and public servants in the Sunlight Labs network would welcome the opportunity to participate. If you wish to opt-out, we understand and hope to see you in other places, online and off.

Yours,

Alex Howard, Sunlight Foundation
Josh Tauberer, GovTrack
Katherine Garcia, Center for Open Data Enterprise
Hudson Hollister, Data Coalition
Phil Ashlock, Data.gov

Here's the news I've been waiting and hoping to share: the Sunlight Foundation will endure as an independent nonprofit, nonpartisan open government advocate: http://sunlightfoundation.com/2016/12/16/sunlight-will-endure/ John Wonderlich will be the executive director.

And here's the personal and professional news: I am now the deputy director of the Sunlight Foundation, which is exciting, humbling and a responsibility I'm ready to take on. We have a lot of work to do, together. Game on.
