Great posts Mariano, many thanks (southern hemisphere is really making
moves in this space nice :)

Wondering if we need to do a joint hemisphere hack together?  We could
collect a bunch of data specific to the southern hemisphere and launch a
bunch of stories on international data day or the like?

Just a thought :)

Kind Regards, Flanders
