At this event we will discuss HK Government Information and data – can we share it, repurpose it, build on it? What are the limitations, risks? Will government information become public domain and Creative Commons Zero (CC0) like in the United States? If not, why not?
Pindar Wong is the co-public lead of Creative Commons Hong Kong. He serves on the Digital 21 Strategy Advisory Committee of the Hong Kong Government, the School of Engineering Advisory Committee HKUST, the Technical Advisory Board of the Packet Clearing House. He is a member of DimSumLabs and the W3C Web Payments Community Group. He enjoys innovating by hacking the Raspberry Pi and Internet Governance Policy and serves as a Commissioner on the Global Commission on Internet Governance. He struggles to learn the electric guitar.
