Digital Capital Week is coming back to the United States Capital on November 4th, 2011. In a livestream today, the organizers of the inaugural 2010 event announced the data and opened the gates for DC Week registration and ideas for events and outcomes. They’re planning on 10,000 attendees this year.
If you missed it last year, Digital Capital Week showcased technological innovation in Washington. Following the success of last year’s event, it’s safe to expect some kind of “Gov 2.0 and Org. 2.0 Day” event, with sessions on nonprofits and social media, government transparency, cloud computing and privacy, mobile technology in 21st Century statecraft, online engagement, the digital divide and open leadership. Here’s the details on this year’s festival, along with statistics from last year:
The 411 on DC Week 2011
DCWEEK is a week long festival in the US capital focused on bringing together designers, developers, entrepreneurs, and social innovators of all kinds.
It’s a series of 100s of distributed events powered by the community and complemented by core conferences, parties, and projects created by the festival organizers iStrategyLabs and Tech Cocktail. DCWEEK 2010 was assembled in 3.5 months and drew 6,000 attendees from around the world. This year we’re planning on 10,000+.
