Thanks Sam for all your amazing work. It was great working with you at
OKFN, and I only wish our paths brought us together more often
I sympathize about not having enough time - in starting my own business I
have been unable to devote much time to OpenGLAM, but, I keep the door
open. Perhaps you'll find time in the future :)
However, I am working directly with small non profits, so I really look
forward to seeing what your work turns up!
