Rebuilding Local Trust in Government
BY ROHIT MALHOTRA
Community is so much bigger than one's individual self and this is something that seems to have been forgotten here in the US of A. Rohit Malhotra's grandfather was a hero of his, a teacher in a remote village in India, who instilled this ideal of what community is, in him as a small child. The polar opposites of 'community' and of 'government' (at least after this election) are what Rohit grew up loving. Listen as he speaks about the importance of local government and trust has in our communities.
On Officially Getting Things Named on the Map; or, How a Seemingly Interesting Class Project Went Totally Awry and Nearly Drove the Professor and Government Employees Insane

ON AUG 17, 2017
Keith Yearman, a geography professor, decided to get his classes involved in a project related to toponyms; that is, geographic place names. Using guidelines established by the U.S. Board on Geographic Names, a little-known function of the federal government, his students worked to name DuPage County features that lacked official names. He admittedly did not think this project through as thoroughly as needed, which resulted in this of a project gone awry—a project that caused a tremendous amount of work and stress for federal employees and local politicians.

Open Gov in Chicago: Changing the Government from the Outside In
Ever wanted to know when your city would fix that pot hole? Or when and where flu shots are available? Derek Eder utilizes open data -- government information readily available to the public -- to develop civic applications that not only reveal how the government works, but also allow local citizens to interact with, participate in, and use government services more effectively. In today's Presentation of the Day "Open Gov in Chicago: Changing Government from the Outside In" from Table XI's May Table Talks event, Derek demonstrates the advantages and enormous potential for open data; from food inspection to crime reporting to bus locations.
Hop hop hop! The Weimar co-op is going on well forward! With the new poster designed by Tereza we took off to catch the attention of potential speakers for the first PKN in Weimar. The response is good: we already gathered 6 confirmations from presenters which gives a nice minimum for a good PechaKucha to take place! This means there are only 6 more places left as we think to limit the evening to 12 presentations. At some special point we will also connect with Tokio during the Global Wave!

Safecast: Real-time Hyper-local Information
"It's a little bit like Google Street View, it's the same idea ...with radiation." From PKN Tokyo’s recent "Powered by PechaKucha: Tohoku 2020: Building a sustainable Post-3/11 Future" Pieter Franken Presents Safecast: Real-time Hyper-local Information. In our technologically saturated age, it is hypothetically easy to share data instantaneously with others. After the Tohoku Earthquake, Pieter and what would eventually become the Safecast.org Team realized that information about the radiation levels couldn’t be spread as it didin’t exist. After connecting to minds, companies, and volunteers – both in Japan and abroad– an open-source system was developed that could quickly collect, record, and share radiation level information.
