@rufuspollock I’ll be in San Francisco on the day SOCAP starts, 6 October. Should I try to host a meetup there for anyone interested in a more informal meetup? I’m guessing at least a few people involved in Open Knowledge will be heading to the event… or, people who would be interested in learning more would be there in some numbers.

I’m free from around 1pm that day, catching a flight out around 6pm. Happy to host something and work out some way of seeding the awesome :smile:

Thanks @rufuspollock for the updates and @CecileLG for Hangout.
It would be great if we can publish a short summary of the meetup on http://okfncommunity.tumblr.com/ or a longer on fr.okfn.org
