You need a gpg key to start, create one now!

You might as well make it with as big a key size as possible.

We will need someone to collate the keys and print them out.

Please let us know how many we should print and where to print them.

Each person stands up, shows their photo id and read their fingerprint aloud.

printouts of everyone's fingerprints were provided so you can tick off as you go

This worked ok but took a long time to get through everyone.

Things to watch out for:
+
* Open data workshop by Helen Ensikat - link TBA
* does it match thair name
+
* The government data landscape in Australia was mapped out at http://agict.gov.au/blog/2013/10/26/government-data-landscape-australia including data projects, policies, standards, communities and other initiatives relating to government.
* Does the person have a key with that fingerprint, do the numbers match.
+
* Request and vote up datasets from government at the data.gov.au Data Request Site http://datagovau.ideascale.com/ :)
* know that anyone can generate a key and claim an email address
+
 
* if someone can be bothered they can keep trying to generate a key with the first 8 digits the same as another key but getting the whole fingerprint is nearly impossible

 +
** Directly update data via web form
 +
** Indirectly update data by synchronising previously-exported data; for example: http://data.gov.au/ data might have been submitted to http://www.openstreetmap.org/; when that data is updated on http://www.openstreetmap.org/, those changes could be synchronised back into http://data.gov.au/

Discussions

Government organisation

  • Discussed HM Revenue and customs who can refund in seconds, but also debit your account instantly as well. The key point is that there are upsides and downsides to being able to do this.
  • The use of Bitcoin for transparency and accountability
  • Currently http://data.gov.au/ publishes read-only data; allow community collaborators (members of the public, contractors to public works, etc) to directly update or contribute to http://data.gov.au/ data sets; possible use cases:
