Hi all,

Some national business registries across the world are releasing their 
data as open data.

In order to assess the quality of an open data initiative, I would need 
some insights about the uses journalists could have of a business registry.

Could some of you take a couple of minutes in order to describe what 
particular use you would have of an open business registry ? What data 
would be of particular interest to you ? With what data would you maybe 
match them and for what purpose ?

With my best thanks for your attention to my request, and for anything 
you can do to help me,

François Paquot
