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 industry (here)....

Regards - Martin

> 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.
