Agree that "good things shoud happend", home for  this will most 
probably be either under "Open Government Data" or under "Open Democracy 
and Citizen Movements". This depends mostly upon the Guest Programme 
Planners in these streams - who is more willing to catch the ball?

Are there any people on the lists who already know that will participate 
both Paris and Helsinki -events?
