[okfn-coord] [Fwd: Re: Annual Open Knowledge Conference]

Other potential speakers that spring to mind include:

 * Soren Auer
 * Erik Duval (from ARIADNE, on 'open metadata')
   - see <http://www.cs.kuleuven.be/~erikd/>
 * Someone from COMMUNIA
 * Jordan Hatcher (on the open data license?)
 * Tom Steinberg (who didn't speak last time, did he?)

Perhaps we could assemble a panel of mini-presentations of projects such
as AMEE, or Quotations Book - rather than full length talks? Would that
be an alright compromise?

Best wishes,
