I strongly support including this article in the proceedings. I think
this is very interesting for other OKFN workuing groups and the wider
community. Thanks for this article. (A proposal: You might add a link
to the cloud of the linguistic CKAN group in semantic CKAN, see

I think this would add nicely to the conference and thus support
giving Owen a slot.

I am not sure  whether Thomas concept of "Open Data" is the same as th
OKFN's . Perhaps we should ask him about that. If the project he wants
to present really uses openly licensed data conformant with the Open
Definition, I see no problems with giving him a time slot.

All the best
