Open Knowledge Foundation[edit | edit source]

I recieved a response from Jonathen Gray. We will be arranging a call for Mid July. Points to discuss would be grateful.

From the initial emails we have had, he said that range of people from the cultural heritage sector went to thier recent Communia event. This would helpful with our cultural partnerships.

I have also suggested the formation of a UK open source/free knowledge council following on from my suggestion to iCommons. This is however in the early stages and will require much more communication before anything formal is suggested.

I also mentioned conferencing partnerships.
