Software developers and designers are a hot commodity. Constantly in demand, they could be building the next Flappy Bird, or a sexy new platform to transform online retail. But some coders are willing to donate their talents to the greater good. And they just might be able to make government data sexy.

"The office received 253 more requests for assistance during the 2012 fiscal year than it did the year before, a 31 percent spike, according to its recently released annual report. OIP Director Cheryl Kakazu Park attributed the increase to greater awareness among both the public and government agencies of the state’s open government requirements."

Screening of 'The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz' on Friday, Sept. 5th, at 6pm.

Discussion and workshop on Open Data/Open Knowledge to follow on Saturday, Sept. 6th, from 10am - 2pm.

'The Internet’s Own Boy' follows the story of programming prodigy and information activist Aaron Swartz. From Swartz's help in the development of the basic internet protocol RSS to his co-founding of Reddit, his fingerprints are all over the internet. But it was Swartz's groundbreaking work in social justice and political organizing combined with his aggressive approach to information access that ensnared him in a two-year legal nightmare. It was a battle that ended with the taking of his own life at the age of 26. Aaron's story touched a nerve with people far beyond the online communities in which he was a celebrity. This film is a personal story about what we lose when we are tone deaf about technology and its relationship to our civil liberties.

"These days, the word 'hacking' doesn't always bring up a positive connotation.  But a gathering of creative and civic minded residents are changing that and at the same time trying to make a change in the community. If great minds think alike, then there was a lot of brain power in the room this Saturday morning.  Those gathered at R&D in Kakaako were using smart phones, laptops and tablets to solve complex social problems."

"Technical, civic-minded citizens can help create the tools to facilitate citizen interaction with government agencies, and have already done so by way of grass-roots-style application development efforts. [But] when it comes to citizen engagement, and the utilization of volunteers for technical purposes, sustainability should be at the heart of every project or job. Rapid innovation, while positive and invigorating, must also be sustainable and fruitful."

"What I’m looking for now is more examples of startups and businesses that have been created using open data or that would not be able to continue operations without it. If big data is a strategic resource, it’s important to understand how and where organizations are using it for public good, civic utility and economic benefit."

"For data journalism to develop beyond just being the latest fad, it has to engage and involve the people reading the news as well as creating it. Data journalism is not (just) about being clever and showing the world how clever you are. It has to be about more than that."
