Dear all,

Probably the best argument for the strong connection between the 
'software development foundation' we fundamentally are and data is the 
talk Arnulf gave at FOSS4G Bonn: Software comes and goes. Mind the Data! 
[https://vimeo.com/187556741]. Furthermore, I believe that the affinity 
between the philosophy of open source and open data is indisputable.

That being said, I would like to mention a discussion me and Vasile 
prepared and facilitated within the workshop 'Open data priorities and 
engagement — identifying data sets for publication' 

Context: workshop organized within the share PSI 2.0 project: The 
network for innovation in European public sector information 

The name of our session was Free our Maps and the preparation can be 
found here 
Notes take by Ingo Simonis fron OGC can be found here 
[https://www.w3.org/2013/share-psi/workshop/Timisoara/Freemaps]. The 
issues we tried to tackle there were identified during the work we did 
in the http://geoidea.ro/ project, a project for catalyzing and pushing 
forward the open gov geodata initiative in Romania.

Warm regards,
