Hi gang;

Tomorrow Jonathan Brun, co-founder of Open North (http://opennorth.ca) 
which builds tools for a better democracy and one of the first open data 
NGOs in Canada, co-founder of Nimonik (http://www.nimonik.com/about-us/ 
<http://www.nimonik.com/about-us/>), and of Montreal Ouvert 
(http://montrealouvert.net/) one of the most successful open data groups 
in Canada is in Dub.

He and I will be at Grogans this Saturday, March 1st, at 4PM for drinks 
and a mini show and tell, maybe go for dinner somewhere after.

Anyone interested? I thought we could start at Grogans and go from 
there.  If we move, I will tweet it with  #OpenDataIrl as a tag.

Jonathan & his colleagues have been pretty successful at pulling off 
some great projects, and their apps have had good uptake in gov, and 
they received the 1st gov. contract to create http://open511.org/ api 
which has become an excellent road event tool.

Looking forward to meeting you.
