Since I heard that last year’s Gov 2.0 and Open Government Events Calendar was useful to the broader community, here’s this year’s version. There will be many other places around the globe for people to gather, talk and learn about Gov 2.0 in 2012 — just take a look through the many Govloop event listings. There will be any number of citizen-generated unconferences and hackathons, where the attendees generate the program. They’ll include CityCamps, BarCamps, PodCamps or MobileCamps. Check out the CityCamp calendar to find one near you and keep an eye out for CityCamp meetups in February.
The following listings are by no means comprehensive but should serve as a starting point if you’re wondering what’s happening, when and where. If you know about more Gov 2.0 events that should be listed here, please let me know at email@example.com or @digiphile.
Special note of thanks to the Intellitics 2012 conference radar and Gov 2.0 Radio calendar feed, which are both excellent resources.

Any chance we could make this a shared Google Calendar we can all subscribe to and submit events to? I think that’d be a pretty awesome resource.
Alex asked me about doing something more with this here at GovFresh. I’m always concerned about bandwidth and maintaining, but have some ideas. Stay tuned.
Awesome, feel free to let me know if there’s anything Socrata can do to help. We’ve got some of our customers managing shared catalogs through the platform now, so that might be a possibility too.
@Chris I don’t see why not. Have you built such a calendar before?
Here is another one http://www.unpan.org/ogdce
