Dear All

We had a very productive hack session on Monday night regarding linked open
drug data. You can see the full notes here:

In summary, we reviewed the openness of several LODD data sets in CKAN and
identified those whose maintainer's should be sent an Is It Open Data?
request. We drafted letters  to send to the World Health Organisation Global
Health Observatory and the maintainers of two datasets at the US National
Library of Medicine:

Before we send them via http://www.isitopendata.org/, it would be great to
get more signatories from the group, so please add your name to the end of
the generic letter on http://okfnpad.org/sciencewg-loddhack-201103 if you
are happy to be included. Unfortunately, we didn't remind all of the hack
session participants to do this before they left, so if you helped on Monday
then please do sign!

We will be sending the letters on Monday 14th March during a follow up
session, of which more details are to follow.

If there is a group on CKAN, or a general topic area that you feel would be
a good target for future sessions of this nature, then please let me know!
