Hey everybody,

I wanted to thank you again for coming to the Open Economics Hackday
Follow-Up on Saturday (February 4) - this would not have been possible
without you! I honestly enjoyed working with you until the late hours of
the night. Here a summary of the progress and the todos:

*# Data*
We finalised the data categories, which contain three indicators each -
please check out below for the update. We are still considering whether to
include the Public Services category, which is measured by an index of
citizens' satisfaction. Each indicator should have a description of a
couple of sentences - we are aiming at having these descriptions in
English, Italian, Spanish, German and Portuguese at the first instance.
Some data series still need to be added to the DataHub and to the Yourtopia
dataset, I am working on this, let me know if you want to help:

*# Texts*
Please, give us a hand in finalising the texts. You can find  at
http://econ.okfnpad.org/yourtopia2 suggestions both for

* frontpage texts
* a short overview text
* a longer background text

As Dirk wrote, we would very much appreciate it if you go through the text
and help us edit. We want to make sure everything is fine before starting
the translations.

*# Visuals*

We could use some of the old Yourtopia logos or design new ones (NB: we are
definitely keeping the inequality logo!!!). Would you like to participate
in the logo design?
@coders - Would you give us an update of what was done and what still needs
to be finished?
