Hi all,
I'm Sally and I have only just joined the OKF as the Open Data and Privacy
Project Coordinator. I feel I'm at a bit of disadvantage here , having
missed most of the interesting discussions/explorations on the WG list
around the personal data/my data and open data 'conflict'. I have
previously done some work around open access, open licenses and Rights to
Information (to government data) , and also OSS use in the public service
at policy level. While privacy concerns were considered, they were
certainly not central, and looking back now, I realize there were several
missed opportunities to take these privacy considerations further.  Which
is why it is exciting for me (been a bit of a late bloomer) to be coming on
board at this time when the privacy considerations are more explicit.

Judging by how much is being done (on and off this list), we hope to have a
few sections at OKFest 2014 that integrate all these different resources.
Looking to discuss this further over the next couple of days. In the
meantime, all thoughts welcome!
