Much to my chagrin, I am missing Chapel Hill’s kick-ass annual Martin Luther King day protest, but I have a good reason: I am attending a national “working meeting” on local political information on the Internet organized by the Sunlight Foundation and Berkman Center at Harvard Law School.
Last night we enjoyed dinner and a brief-but-illuminating talk by Dave Weinberger. I hope to get a chance to post more thoughts later, but meanwhile you can read other bloggers’ coverage via the tag BerkmanSunlight. (Why they held this meeting on a holiday – not to mention such an important one at the local community level – I do not understand.)
Now, back to paying attention!
