Hi Julia-

I am very interested in the Sunlight Foundation's position on personal data as it relates to open data initiatives. I will send my story on developing a privacy policy this afternoon.

Best regards

Hello everybody,

After several years of working in the Hungarian transparency community, I have recently moved to Washington, DC to join Sunlight Foundation<http://sunlightfoundation.com/> and coordinate their new international program. I am truly honored by the opportunity and thrilled to let you know that this fascinating organization has decided to deepen their involvement in the global transparency movement.

As part of its international program, Sunlight plans to push broad initiatives that are helping to define how open government works globally, developing the capacity of its NGO allies throughout the world, catalyzing future work by building research and evidence that support their priorities, and serving as a hub in the network of international transparency practitioners. Our major focus areas for the next coming years are legislative transparency where Sunlight has already taken a leading role in creating and coordinating a forum<http://www.openingparliament.org/> for national Parliamentary Monitoring Organizations (PMOs), influence/money in politics and the transparency of political finance, and open data in general, where Sunlight plans to join with other groups to pursue meaningful transparency and accountability from open data.

At this stage, I would really appreciate if you shared your stories, projects and challenges directly with me or just reach out to me if you think that Sunlight`s international program may be of any relevance to you.

I'm really looking forward to working with all of you!
