Making Canberra Collaborative
Greetings from the launch of GovHack 2014 at Entry 29 in Canberra. This started with the "Govhack 2014 Opening Video", with Pia Waugh as a newsreader, introducing "Mal" (Malcolm Turnbull, Minister for Communications). The minister cited the case of a new App which
displays dollar savings from efficient household appliances, rather than
just displaying energy savings. Teams will spend the weekend at GovHack
preparing applications using data provided by federal, state and local
governments across Australia. The completion a range of Prizes, Locations and
videos about GovHack.
