Hi all, proposed text for Juan.

Dear Juan,

Following our last meeting in Luxemburg and your subsequent requests, I am
happy to update you on our progress and send you the documents requested.

It would indeed be very beneficial to discuss a few matters - in particular
the score board and our ideas on the ePSI 2012 conference (documents hereon
attached) - during a conference call, as you suggest. Having touched base
with Marc and Tom, we could definitely make it coming Friday morning. Would
10.15 suit you? 

Below you will find a short update: 

Website: we are currently making the new website available in the test
environment of our production server, including migrating the existing
content into the new website. I'm still maintaining Oct 1st as our target
for having that ready, provided we don't run into technical issues along the
way. Once we're then sure everything is in order, we'll switch to the new
site as the new platform. I will send you the link to the test site for the
new platform later this week.


[[Marc paragraaf]] We'd like to hear your thoughts and discuss our draft
Friday in the conference call.

Scoreboard: Tom has worked out an adapted approach to the indicators, based
on your feedback earlier this month. I will be sending you a draft version
tonight, which we'd like to discuss with you in the conference call Friday. 

Legal cases etc:  9 descriptions of legal cases have been uploaded during
the summer weeks, and are on-line. The problem is that there is a 'shortage'
of new cases, however, we will of course cover any disputes coming up.
Products and Services will be show cased in the new site, as we are using a
slightly different way of formatting the content. Events: are tracked
through our event calendar

Fact sheets: The 12 fact sheets ready will be uploaded to our Scribd account
and published on the platform. Where the first batch covered legal aspects
mostly, in the next fact sheets we plan to focus on more practical and
technical aspects, such as: data journalism, (emerging) data tools, linked
government data and how PSI re-use can create value in: new products /
services, participation, self-empowerment, new knowledge, efficient
government, effective government, transparency. Possibly this addresses your
point that some key issues might still be missing from the list of fact
sheets. Obviously, we can also discuss this during our conference call.

Topic Reports:  many thanks for your feedback on the Topic Reports, we will
be publishing them shortly, as well as pushing for attention to them in an
e-mail to the stakeholders (also covering e.g. the speech last week by
Commissioner Kroes and the now published study of Graham Vickery )
