Hi all,

This is my turn to indroduce myself,

I am Deputy Attaché for Science and Technology at the French Embassy in
London and I wrote a report on open data in

(only in french). I am also involved in the Open data group of the new
French Digital Council and I recently joined the OKFn.

I am very interested in sharing best pratices among projects and easing
cross discussions (It's the aim of diplomacy after all ;).
And for sure the OGD Camp 2011 will be a very good opportunity for that.

First things I can do:
- help bringing french key people to the OGD Camp
- promote the event and broadcast the feedbacks

I hope I will be able to attend the event, I'll let you know

Best regards,

Pierre Chrzanowski
