Hi Kat,

Is there any preview of the timeline? Seeing what you have now helps me
check if I can think about a missing fact.

> Hello,
> The Finnish Institute in London and the Open Knowledge Foundation are
> publishing a book, and we want you to be a part of its history. The Open
> Book (publish date 2013, details here <http://bit.ly/UK1A72>) is a
> crowd-sourced publication which will contextualise the international open
> knowledge movement in the words of those who are helping build it today.
> This book, based on the ideas of more than 1,000 participants from over 50
> nations who came together in to attend the world’s first Open Knowledge
> Festival <http://okfestival.org> in Helsinki, will highlight the hopes
> and motivations of those currently working to promote global change, and
> introduce the movement to new audiences.
> The book will begin with a pull-out concertina - a visual timeline
> introducing the most important events in the history of open knowledge and
> open data. As a open knowledge advocate, we would like to invite you to
> help build this crowd-sourced timeline with us. We will also publish it
> online using the Open Knowledge Foundation's Recline Timeliner <
> http://timeliner.reclinejs.com/> based off Timeline.JS <
> http://timeline.verite.co/> so that it can be a living document which
> chronicles the legacy of open knowledge and open data movements over time.
> To get involved, send us one to five key events, inventions or decisions
> that in your opinion have contributed the most to the evolution of open
> knowledge, and send these ideas to  openbook at okfestival.org. Your
> submission can be very informal. We want to hear about the moments you have
> found the most inspiring.
> If you wish to be attributed in the text for your contribution, please
> provide your full name. We also appreciate timeline contributions that
> include a photo and location where possible. The publishing deadline for
> contributions is January 13.
> We look forward to your submissions!
> Sincerely,
> The Open Book Editorial Team
