Capturing the conversation
This event is all about sharing and networking so expect to be photographed, recorded, and videoed. If you don’t wish to have your photo taken or be recorded – let the person holding the camera or one of the events volunteers know.
The conversation will also be happening online so remember to share your thoughts and experience via a blog post, Twitter (#govhack), Flickr (tagged govhack), IRC (#govhack on freenode), share resources on the govcampau wiki – whatever channel you choose!
There are also a number of events happening for innovation Week using the hashtag #innovationweek on Twitter.
GovHack 2012 was run by volunteers from the Gov 2.0 Community, Rewired State and the eGovernment Technology Cluster.
GovHack was originally an Australian initiative by Web Directions. They ran the first GovHack which was funded by the Gov 2.0 Taskforce in 2009 as part of their MashUp Australia initiative.
