OpenGovWest took place in Portland over the weekend of May 13-15th.

There was a lot of cross pollination amongst the Seattle Journalism scene, as the main organizer of the conference was Sarah Schacht from Knowledge As Power, a Seattle based civic empowerment organization that helps build tools around legislative tracking and other civic needs.

The best way to catch up on what transpired is through the live coverage feed from the event, and keep your eyes on the blog where I imagine they will post archival video footage of the sessions.
