We are delighted that we have gained Stefan Wehrmeyer as one of our keynote speakers. Many of you will know Stefan as the founder of the platform FragDenStaat and as one of the heads behind the project Offene Gesetze of the Open Knowledge Foundation Deutschland e.V.
Our legal documents are, in one sense, public, but not open. The hurdles that may arise are of technical, legal and structural nature. Nonetheless, the civil society shows ways -e.g. with projects like Offene Gesetze- how digital technology can improve the usage of legal and legislative documents. Unfortunately, support from the administrations is often lacking.
In his talk Demokratie-DevOps Stefan will summarize the current situation for us.
