I just sent the outlines of 3 of our projects on to Vera Franz at OSI 
(following a long phone conversation 10 days ago). I've removed the 
attachments but they can be found on the board wiki at (password

We'll see what comes of this ...

Jonathan: I note the NLNet deadline for proposals is the 1st of 
February. Is it worth submitting the CKAN item to them as we discussed? 
I've now updated this (as you will see on the wiki) to be more generic 
but I don't know whether you can just post them the PDF or we need to do 
something more.

Dear Vera,

Here are the promised project summaries attached in PDF format.
Apologies for the delay in getting these to you -- last week was rather

I've used PDF as I thought this ensured maximum portability, however if
you'd like these in a different format (e.g. Open Office or even plain
text) please let me know. The two main ones to look at in terms of OSI's
current interests are probably "Where Does My Money Go" (relevant on the
governance and transparency side of things), and "Weaving History"
(relevant on the educational and content reuse side of things), though
CKAN might also be interesting from the infrastructure and reuse point
of view.

Finally, I'm sorry we won't be seeing you at "Open Knowledge 2008
(OKCon)" on the 15th of March but I hope we'll get a chance to meet in
person soon.
