Nod, i exchanged a couple of emails with Charles Arthur back in 
Feb/March during publicgeodata's First Big Push, and he was very open
and receptive. At the time i was hyperfocusing on geodata completely
and it wasn't clear how much wider they were going to cast their net.
They're still plugging away at the Ordnance Survey, who are still
being 'selective with the truth' to the UK and EU parliaments. 

Good luck making a stronger connection to them, i really wish i could
be around for the event...
