On Wednesday, 28 April, 9am Boston / 2pm London [1], the W3C eGov
Interest Group will host a presentation of draft legislation in New York
State which would require "state agencies to make all public records,
with certain exceptions, available on a single ... web portal, without
any fees or license or registration requirements."  [2] Our presenter
will be Paul Curtis, from the office of Assembley Member Micah Kellner,
who introduced the legislation.  Following the discussion, we'll have an
open discussion of this and related topics.

This is one of our new seminar-style Interest Group meetings: it will be
open the public, and we'll start with the presentation, for up to an
hour.  Afterword, we'll switch to more of a business-meeting mode, with
our usual discussions about projects, planning, etc.  Members of the
public are welcome to stay and listen for that part.
