Hi all,

I think the program is really taking shape and looks quite promising. Thanks to Marc and all involved! However I am a unhappy with our ideas of plenary 2 (16.00 – 17.00: Plenary 2 – what can we take home?)

I think our current plans are boring and would like to suggest the following: 

Having a provocative very interactive plenary debate about "can we (the open data movement) deliver what we promise" and have a critical debate on why there are so little re-use success stories, why the impact of open data initiatives is so hard to measure and how we can try to answer this kind of questions. 

Potential panelists:

- someone from ODI
- someone from world bank
- someone from web foundation
- someone from government

moderator Tim Davies or Andrew Stott

What do you think?
