Hi Svetlana

Open science are definitely keen - how about a meta-community sprint next
week? I can spend some focused time on this and we can explore different
ideas and try out things from the list of suggestions on the open-science
thread you've linked.

Other working group leads and members may also be able to contribute and we
can rethink some of the ways we can help people connect. For example, I've
been thinking for ages about a map view for the open science working group
where local groups and individual members can add themselves to help
everyone find open science activities in their area. Some tags could also
extend this to allow people to look up other members with particular
interests e.g. publishing, biology. This kind of thing probably already
exists and maybe even within the Open Knowledge network.

Let me know what you think and we can get planning :)
