Thank you to all for being an integral part of Honolulu's first CityCamp. It was by all measures a great success, all because of you. I love how the community came together, shared knowledge and brainstormed ideas. It was inspiring to see City employees collaborating with the community in a productive, can-do environment.
As the day concluded, many people asked, what's next? CityCamp Honolulu was just a catalyst, a spark that we must now nurture and fuel to create lasting change. As Forest Frizzell said, "we will continue to have monthly meetups throughout 2012 as we usher in Code for America."
Some key dates to keep in mind:
- Fri-Sat, January 20-21, 2012 - CityCampHNL Hack-a-thon
- Saturday, February 25, 2012 - Unconferenz 2012
We will also keep you informed of any meetups that get scheduled through our Facebook
We wil also continue the conversation and develop our ideas online. Here are a couple resources I encourage you to participate in:
We got some great coverage of the event thanks to citizen journalist and the media:
Thanks again for being a part of CityCamp Honolulu. We've made a great first step and I look forward to being a part of this ground breaking journey.
