Hi All,

We've just announced a project that the Open Knowledge Foundation has
been working on with a group of other organisations and individuals
for some time now.

In a nut-shell, it's a community-driven effort to develop simple,
light-weight protocols and formats for distributed and collaborative
work with data, responding to the basic challenge that the civic and
open data community is hampered by a lack of simple standards for
interaction between services and tools.

Read more about it on the OKFN blog here [1]


Get Data Protocols off to a flying start, and support our application
to the Knight News Challenge by giving the proposal a quick thumbs up!

All the best,
