Hey! Things continue to get weird. When you get a second, try and access http://data.whitehouse.gov. It was emptied of all data sets earlier this year, and now the domain itself is inaccessible.

So we're going to talk about it! Join us, the Online News Association, and the Society of Professional Journalists for an evening of conversation and mingling at Tech Hill Commons. We'll host a panel discussion featuring Robyn Mace, CDO of Nashville , and others (TBA). Reception to follow. We'll have a cooler full of beer and a bunch of those little Milano cookies. You know? The chocolate shortbread ones?

We'll try and cover three main topics:

What does the fed hiding its data imply for lower levels of government and the way they make decisions about transparency?
What kind of effects can we expect to see cascade down across government and non profits?
What do we do now?
