Earlier this month I was kindly invited to talk at **[Hack de Overheid](http://www.hackdeoverheid.nl/), a very well-organized hackathon** in Amsterdam for building apps around open data sets.
There were **20-odd governmental organizations and civic institutions pitching their datasets.** The content ranged from cultural data from museums and archives to open API calls from the fire department.
You even receive **a coveted coffee cup** when you release a dataset, based on the [five-star Linked Data scheme](http://www.w3.org/DesignIssues/LinkedData.html) by Tim Berners-Lee.
Below are the **[slides I made for the talk](http://michellethorne.cc/wp-content/uploads/webmaker_slides.zip),** based on [Mark Surman’s Personal Democracy Forum keynote](https://commonspace.wordpress.com/2012/06/05/draft-pdf-talk/).
I enjoyed making these slides because:
* I learned to hack together **a new webmaker theme**
* **It uses Popcorn.js to drive the slide transitions** (thanks, [Ben](http://www.benmoskowitz.com/)!)
* **It’s very easy and fun to change the images** in HTML slides.
