Medlemsmøte 2015-08-11: Civic Tech and the Sad Story of Freedom of Information in Hungary

Norwegian Unix User Group (NUUG) inviterer til medlemsmøte i NUUG Oslo. Alle medlemmer og ikke-medlemmer er velkomne. Arrangementet er gratis. Etter foredraget (fra ca. 19:45) blir det sosialt samvær.

Tirsdag 11. august 2015 kl. 18.30
Teknologihuset, 3.etg Pilestredet 56, og
Atea Stavanger, Stadionparken (Viking Stadion), Jåttåvågveien 7, Stavanger (videostream).

Månedens tema er: «Civic Tech and the Sad Story of Freedom of Information in Hungary» med Marietta Le. Foredraget vil foregå på engelsk:

"Átlátszó," the word means "transparent" in Hungarian, and it is the name of Hungary's first independent investigative journalism website. A watchdog non-government organisation (NGO) which has experimented with introducing Civic Tech solutions in order to facilitate the work of its team, and also to provide citizens with empowering tools. Since Atlatszo.hu was launched in 2011, the Freedom of Information Act has received a lot of attention, and the legal way for questioning public bodies about spending, a "Freedom of Information request" has become the tool for many to reveal information about corruption.

Marietta Le will showcase the use of the free software system Alaveteli, and the use of the Freedom of Information Act in Hungary. The law has been changed since 2011, and the latest news is about a threat that would make access to information much harder for Hungarian citizens. Meanwhile, Atlatszo.hu and many others are trying to implement new Civic Tech solutions in Hungary to help people exercise their democratic rights.

Marietta Le is an FOI advocate at Atlatszo.hu Hungarian investigative journalism website. She also works with the K-Monitor anti-corruption NGO as a project coordinator to "Be Smart with Data", a program that facilitates NGOs in producing web apps and visualisations using open data. In 2015 the Hungarian Forbes magazine has featured her on their "30 under 30" list for starting "Jarokelo.hu", a street fixing website in Hungary.

In 2014 one of her articles, "Har ungarerne endelig skjřnt at de lever i et demokrati?", was translated to Norwegian and publisehed in Vox Publica. Check it out if you want to learn more about her view on democracy in Hungary.
