Hello everyone,

I never know how to present myself, but let's try it:
I'm Laurent Peuch (Bram on irc), from the Internet, I'm a free
software/freedom/Internet lover/activist and a code addict.

In the informations that might interest you, I'm:
- involved since quite some time already as a volunteer in la
  Quadrature du Net, a French citizen group that defend our freedom
  (especially of expression) on the Internet and Net Neutrality. It
  has been especially involved against ACTA.
- also involved since the beginning in NURPA, a Belgium citizen group
  that participate in the same subjects than la Quadrature du Net but
  in Belgium (and also at the European level).
- the main develop of the political memory of la Quadrature du Net
  which rely a lot of opendata (provided by Parltrack for the
  European Parliament and by NosDeputes.Fr for the French Assemble).
  It's one of our main campaign tools that also allow us to compare
  how our elected representatives match our voting recommendations on
  text that are related to our subjects (ie: the vote on the
  resolution on ACTA).
- also involved in Neutrinet.
- probably forgetting something.
- the fact that I have just started to parse lachambre.be to create
  structured data out of it because I'm very annoyed that no one has
  ever done this yet (at my knowledge) reminded me to subscribe to
  this list.

I subscribed to this list to be informed on what is happening on
opendata in Belgium (I'm quite disconnected with this community in
general) and also because I'm very happy to see things moving and see
if I can give an hand.

I believe that this is the right time for us citizens to change the
society by building the right tools, especially on the political level
by taking back our role in it, and that opendata is a key element to
that (but not only for that).

I'm also addicted to chocolate and cats.

Nice to meet you :)
