Hi all,

wanted to relate 2 stories I heard today about our platform.

one from Frederico from Uruguay, who came up to me and said "you are the guy
from epsiplatform that wrote about our open data initiative, right?" "Thank
you, because we used your attention to get a bigger sense of urgency in our
government "the European Commission is following our activities""

the other was Tariq, mr Open Data at the World Bank, who said that us
writing about World Bank actitivities is useful to him to show other people
care about his efforts. (I was thanking him for the World Bank's inspiring
work to get African nations going w open data

just so you know, what we're doing is appreciated in various places around
the world.
