Goldfish and Microsoft host Vancouver Open Data Shindig

Bloggers, open source aficionados and virtual map makers descended upon Goldfish, Yaletown’s upscale seafood restaurant last night to attend the Open Data Vancouver Shindig, a showcase for the best open source apps currently drawing on Vancouver’s Open Data Catalogue.

Amongst the apps shown were Vanguide, OData, May Way, Free Finder and the Vancouver Parking app. Nitobi also showed a video (disclosure, I shot the video for my main gig, Freyburg Media) to highlight Vanguide and their hard work bringing Open Data to the masses, at least in Vancouver.
