We as a community have the skills and cleverness to apply computational thinking to the big problem we face today of "doing more with less." How do we get beyond the technology... RSS, RDF, Microformats, iCal, etc., to get other people who do not self-identify as geeks — to actually use authoritative feed syndication to enable Gov 2.0 and the evolution of the institutions we all depend upon.

Data syndication is a fundamental concept and basic skill for all "digital citizens" in order to grow a healthy economy and community. What needs to be taught and what should we expect people to know? Who needs to be taught first? Where is the funding? If you have some ideas, can lend a hand, or influence decision makers, please attend or contribute your thoughts.

Join Orlando's longest-running creative meetup to celebrate our 5th year of bringing likeminded people together. You can get great benefits out of meeting new people, like stimulating your brain, having a safe (non-judgemental) place to talk shop, finding someone to help you build that next startup, or just making friends. Lazy Moon is a local hot spot (if you live in East Orlando) with awesome pizza, great deals, craft beers and a "punk as f**k" vibe. If you're a UCF student you get a discount for skipping class.

The mistaken notion is that the primary product of the newspaper is journalism.

"The future of Local News is About More Than Just Paid content" is an article thinking about the future of "Newspapers" or community data sources/feeds on the Knight foundation sponsered "MediaShift Idea Lab" PBS website.

A newspaper is a product that, at least at its peak, provided about 50 different services for people. It helped people figure out where to shop. It delivered a boatload of coupons every Sunday. It helped them plan their weekend. It entertained them with comics and puzzles. It let them know what was on the school lunch menu. And along the way, it also delivered journalism.
