Welcome Lithuania :)
Hi Victorijia
hi Lucy !

Indeed the Open Data handbook has been vary useful in a couple of occasions.
This is probably one of the best written works authored by OKFN till now.
We have handed it out at our meet-up (where we had Kat Braybrook 
invited). We used it again in the Athens Ignite Show, where it was 
disappearing very quickly from our booth! It was a good starting point 
for discussion with government people.
Recently, we sent an email with the book attached, to every municipality 
in Greece, and some municipalities responded and have shown interest in 
collaborating with us !!!!

Hence, we believe that it is a precious tool in your hands as a new 
incubating OKFN national group !
