"If you are a government employee, concerned citizen, journalist, programmer, hacker, elected official, vendor or techie interested in how you can participate in transforming government in Colorado, we encourage you to join our group," said the mission statement on the group site established to plan the statewide site.
"We are like a think tank, educational resource, and open source technology community all rolled into one," the site said.
Officials from Denver, Lakewood and Boulder County, Colo., will meet with Hovet in Arvada on Feb. 8. at 9:30 a.m. to discuss the statewide open data site idea. Government Technology will report on any concrete ideas resulting from that meeting.
