Hi Daniel

I have added some of my notes but I believe you have a very broad scope that is very hard to pin down (re "around the world"). 

Recently I came across a very nice reading on public sector information, which outlines several of the events you are looking for. It is a book by Georg Aichholzer and Herbert Burkert, called "Public Sector Information in the Digital Age. Between Markets, Public Management and Citizens' Rights." Perhaps you could have a look at this, or at least parts of it that have been published as individual academic papers. There is a wealth of information in there and references to further reading.

Pls excuse me if this sounds like a promotional email, but I find the book to be a valuable resource for a historical perspective.

Kind regards
Christos

Subject: mapping "open government" and "freedom of information" initiatives timeline

Dear all,

I am actually working on a research to map "open government" and "freedom of information" initiatives around the world.

One part will be a timeline to illustrate the most important / outstanding issues and events on both government policy / legislation as well as civil society initiatives

I would like to invite you to have a look on the timeline we have drafted
http://docs.google.com/document/edit?id=19V5UTfrbw1fvBw1FjUJtmgJj9i6eG8nZTh6KoTDVlY0#

and possibly add things we might have missed. Especially initiatives, projects, government policy and or law in your countries would be a substantial benefit to help us complete the picture. It should not take you longer than 10 minutes. If you don't feel comfortable editing the google doc you could also send me a mail. Tanks in advance for you kind cooperation.



Best regards
Daniel
