Hey Paul, 

Matthias Schindler of Wikimedia Germany was in touch with the Commission about getting early access to the data and possibly organising a hack day around them. He had some pretty awesome ideas for the types of analysis he’d like to see. Are you guys in touch about this already?

While we have no idea when (probably sooner than later) the commission or how the commission will publish the 11.000 results we think that e need to be prepared for when they do. Given the fact that 11.000 answers are somewhat impossible to analyse by the small group working on this we were thinking about the possibilities of either automated data analysis or crowdsourcing. I have drawn up a short document that describes the problem at hand which you can find here:

If you have any suggestions or pointers to the right mailing list would be much appreciated. a
