[epsi-coord] ePSIplatform as a partner for DataCatalogs.org?

Hi all,

I'm writing to ask whether ePSIplatform might consider being a partner
for a new website called DataCatalogs.org? DataCatalogs.org aims to be
*the* canonical list of open data catalogues from around the world -
both from government and citizen driven sources.

We've found that lots of people have been duplicating the work of
maintaing lists of catalogs and we'd like to do something about it!
Hence we're trying to bring key stakeholders from around the world
together to collaborate on a single list. More background information
is available here [1] and a demo is available here [2].

In the first instance partnership will entail:

  i. Having the ePSIplatform logo on the about page of the website
  ii. Having a designated person who has an administrative account and
could help to curate the list (this can be as much or as little
commitment as we'd like)
 iii. Helping to promote the site as the de facto place to list data
catalogues for the open data community

What do you think? I'd be grateful if you could let me know ASAP, as
we are aiming to launch this project at our annual conference, OKCon
2011 (okcon.org) in Berlin on 30th June.

In any case I hope you are all well!

All the best,
