organized by Silona Bonewald:

April 9,10,11 2010
in Washington DC

What is citability.org?

Citability is a group of people that are asking that publicly 
available government documentation be citable on the web on a 
paragraph level. Our petition is here.

We believe in leading by example.  We have some ideas on how to 
accomplish this on our wiki.  We want to create the OpenSource tools 
to make it free and easy for any governments to do so!  We are 
committed to creating tools in all the major Open Source 
platforms.  We are also creating internal scrapers and parses for 
those entities that have too much capital committed to proprietary systems.

Therefore we are doing a codeathon. At this event in DC, we will 
write these tools and showcase them to government!  We are hoping to 
have some friends in Government present and perhaps even showcasing 
these new tools on their systems!
