Anybody interested in doing one of these?

Not exactly 'everything' but open source AND open data/information.  Obviously, social media stuff can talk about opening up organizations that want to be transparent.  Transparency is great, but if you don't have access to the info (dead tree library, etc), its existence isn't entirely helpful.  Of course, the same could be said about Internet access, but that's a monetary/bureaucratic nightmare.  Throwing up a StatusNet site seems a much lower barrier to entry than laying fiber to Nome.

On a similar note, Mozilla is starting up something called Drumbeat:

... and will have a series of local events:

I'd love to get people on this list involved if there is any interest.
