If our proposal from the opendataportal.at (cooperation between
wikimedia at and okf-at) get's accepted, i will be there. Daniel
Mietchen and me are also thinking about organizing a meeting between
wikimedia and okfn people around wikimania to talk about ongoing things
and opportunities.

cheers, stefan
