Hi Lucy,

there was a thread (WG lists CC'ed) about the idea to organize some sessions around "open parliamentary / legislation data"[1]  as a continuation of the debate that goes from PMO conference in DC[2] to the upcoming Paris[3] conference.  

I think this is a great idea and we should try to make it happen. Maybe people involved (Benjamin, Tom, Andrew and others) would help coordinating this a bit?

In regards to the streams: This has all become a bit complex. I understand it all makes perfect sense from the org point of view, but - to be honest - I don't care under which "stream" good things are happening - as long as they are actually happening :)

Lets push things fwd!


1. we agreed that the term "parliamentary informatics" actually suites better
