> Hello everyone:
> The first annual meeting of the Open Government Partnership
> www.opengovpartnership.org/ is taking place in Brasilia on April 17-18,
> 2012! Many people working on open government may not be able to attend in
> person, so the OGP has worked with a number of external partners to come
> up with numerous ways for you to participate virtually from wherever you
> may be. Here are some of the online activities that OGP will be hosting
> during the annual meeting in Brasilia. Please join us online on April
> 17-18!
> Online Content. The program and materials provided to those in Brasilia
> will be available on the OGP website in advance of the meeting.  Photos
> from the event will be posted each day of the event.  OGP will also
> publish blog posts summarizing each day's events and outcomes. Want to
> view the OGP meeting materials? 
> Visit the meeting page! 
> Webcast & Interviews. From the speeches given by world leaders to the
> breakout panel discussions with open government practitioners, all of the
> activities in Brasilia will be broadcast live on the web.  During breaks
> in the program, the webcast will feature live interviews with presenters,
> government representatives, and open government leaders in attendance.
> Online viewers will be able to pose questions to those being interviewed.
> Live Chat. Alongside the webcast, OGP will host a live chat where visitors
> can post comments directly. 
> Tweets and 
> Facebook updates discussing the OGP meeting will also be viewable in the
> chat (be sure to use hashtag #OGPBrasilia2012 and #OGP2012 on Twitter). We
> will poll viewers in real-time to see who is watching, where they are,
> what their interests are, and what are their thoughts on the program. We
> will also provide analysis of the conversation happening via social media.
> Want to participate in the webcast and live chat? 
> Please register!Guardian Digital Hub. 
> Guardian Public Leaders Network, the digital media partner for the annual
> meeting in Brasilia, developed an 
> OGP digital hub supporting the online coverage of the upcoming OGP
> Brasilia 2012 Annual Meeting. The hub features articles from co-chairs
> Maria Otero and Jorge Hage, interviews and interactive content. During the
> event Guardian will be blogging live from Brasilia, posting exclusive

> around the world to get together in person to watch the event and discuss
> ways to move open government forward at the local level. 
> These Meetups can help move the discussion in Brasilia, online and at
> home. If you live in Washington, DC (US), Capetown (South Africa), London
> (UK), or Nairobi (Kenya), you can join the local Meetups that have already
> been set up and you can find information on them here:

> from 
> O'Reilly Media will be conducting interviews with the speakers and
> panelists. For more information on the innovation village, please see our 
> call for village participants.

> support of several key organizations that are contributing their time and
> energy to the OGP meeting at little or substantially reduced cost.  The
