The Finns don't allways make comments even if they have something to say 
:) The Finnish representative Antti Eskola raised some discussion about 
the scoreboard in our open data community (Facebook group with 1003 

It seems that my additions came too late, at least there should be some 
points in local PSI, since we have three cities (Helsinki, Tampere, 
Jyväskylä) with working data catalogues. However now when the scoreboard 
was introduced people got interested about it and we will most propably 
see it more carefullu in the coming Open Knowledge Finland convention 
8-9.2. http://fi.okfn.org/convention/ (idea for this came from Ton, 
since you had mentioned that Italians went trough the scoreboard in some 
local hackathon..)
