hi all 

if interesting and this session will be held I can also ask Nikolaus Futter, from Austrian publisher Compass Verlag, to participate - he is member of the PSI alliance and always supports to push open data in Austria - I do think that a session with industry representatives and open data people makes really sense - involving the industry more and more is an important issue to enable re-use of open data in a broad way!! Also open data publishers / the public administration is highly interested in re-use ideas of the (publishing) industry (here in Austria)....

Subject: [ogdcamp] PSI Alliance presence at OGD Camp 

hi all, 

I have been in touch with Rolf Nordqvist, the chairman of the PSI Alliance. The PSI Alliance is a associations representing information industry companies from across the EU, focussing on creating a level playing field for companies when it comes to the re-use of government information. 

At their annual conference last June where I presented I suggested to the audience that the PSI Alliance would be well advised to engage a lot more with the open data movement. I think each has a lot to offer and a lot to learn from the other. 

Rolf asked me how to go about engaging with the open data enthusiasts, and amongst other things I suggested he participates at the OGD Camp. And possibly do a session. 
So I have an additional program suggestion for a session: a conversation between the existing information industry and 'open data people', to explore what we can learn from each other and to understand each others positions better. 

Would that be of interest? 

Alternatively it would be good for the PSI Alliance to simply sit down with a few representatives from OKF, CC Europe and AccessInfo etc.
