(g0v@Stanford Talk) Fork and Merge an Open Government: Experiments of g0v in Taiwan

Title:  Fork and Merge an Open Government: Experiments of g0v in Taiwan

Date: 10/30/2016 Sunday 

Time: 3-5 pm

Location: Havana Room, Graduate Community Center 1F, Stanford University

The g0v.tw (gov-zero Taiwan) is a civic tech community that pushes information transparency, focusing on developing platforms and tools for citizens to participate in society and the processes of government policy-making. Substituting the "o" with "0" in gov, g0v not only stands for rethinking the role that the government plays from the bottom up, but also represents the world view of 0 and 1 in the digital natives generation. 

Founded in 2012, g0v grew to 1000+ contributors within 18 months, with a mix of 40% developer, 30% designer, and 30% activists/officials from government. Taiwan also topped the OKFN Open Data Index in 2015, and g0v is seen as one of the most vibrant civic tech communities in the world. g0v has pushed for open government data, and helped the government draft the Open-Definition-compliant Open Government Data License. We are happy to invite Kirby Wu (co-founder of g0v), Yuren Ju (active participant of g0v) and Ttcat (g0v participant & deputy-CEO of Open Culture Foundation) to share their experiences of civic hacking.
