Hi Laura,

My name is Jarkko Moilanen and one of the Open Knowledge Foundation
Finland "activists". Currently I manage open data activities and
community development in Pirkanmaa region (paid post by Hermia Ltd).

I'm also organizing national level event called Spaceship 2014. Our
event is part of annual NASA driven Space Apps Challenge event.

I was co-organizer in the 2013 Spaceship event in Tampere, which
gathered around 250 entrepreneurs, space specialists from national
organizations and community developers. This year our event will be
national in co-operation with Helsinki and Turku. This year we will have
more partners and sponsors such as LinkedIn and Google to mention a few.
Event in Finland will be taken to Baltic Sea cruise ship :)

I was wondering if OKF would like to be part of this kind open data (and
open source/hardware) driven activities since NASA is pushing their data
to open data as well. OKF could use the network around the globe to
participate at local level.
