In addition to the weekly small meet-ups and the monthly hackathons we also do a summit every two years. For the summit we pay for the airfare and flight. Many from across the world joined in 2014. There is …, the Pirate Party people from Germany, OKFN from France, the New Zealand Code For All, all the usual suspects. They come to Taiwan and learn about the local context. I think the most important thing was that they introduced the agenda they had planned for their year and then it becomes part of the routine in your monthly hackathons. So we keep thinking about what kind of ties we can strengthen - usually with tools, sometimes with procedures, and sometimes also with policies we can talk about with other international people. This year on May 14th and 15th is our next g0v summit. Vox will be there, Pandemos and a lot of European people.
