[liberationtech] NewsChallenge submission for free hosted open-source open data portals for towns

From: Andrew Hoppin <andrew at>

Hi folks,

We submitted to the Knight News Challenge today a proposal to deliver
a *free* full open-source hosted data platform for local governments.

Based on the Drupal-based "DKAN" variant of CKAN software, and
combined with new low-cost multi-tenant Drupal hosting capabilities,
we think it is the best way to rapidly cause an explosion of local
government data to become published and discoverable online in a
sustainable standards-compliant manner.

We will be continuing to refine the proposal and would always love
your offline feedback, and please also consider posting your comments
and "applause" on the submission online to help generate awareness and
interest.  Just click "applaud this" in the right-hand sidebar. You'll
briefly register a free OpenIdeo account or login securely through
Facebook Connect.

And/or please do pass the word-- here is a proposed sample tweet:
Vote in the #newschallenge for free hosted #opensource #opendata
portals for local government: #drupal @nuams

Thank you!
