Greetings, everybody!

I subscribed to this list only a few days ago, and this is the very
first message from it that I have time to read, so please forgive me
if this was already mentioned or is out of scope. This said, what
about _student_ accountants?

Why not involve (young) people who are just learning how accounting
works in analyzing the data and explaining them to the general public?

This (open data and accounting students) is just one of the examples I
made in my OGD talk about Open Data for Education, so if you want to
know more about where this idea comes from and why, please see:
