Great work James! I've just tidied up the original blog post a little
bit to put the main info at the top.

I have also created an etherpad for planning and running the sprint
(we should use this as central planning point):


**Please add your name there if you think you may participate in the
sprint, whether virtually or in-person in Cambridge**.

I've also moved the nstructions there from the blog post (much better
in the pad as we can update etc).

Finally I am about to cross-post about it on the main http://blog.okfn.org/.


PS: one micro item: it is generally bad practice to use caps in online
stuff (fine in print!) as it comes across as 'shouting' :)
