Thanks for an excellent meeting. My three suggestions for differentiating
our work from that of the other group are to take on bigger challenges:

 

Improve government web sites (e.g. recent announcement in US)

 

Enter app contests (e,g, EPA Apps for the Environment - see my You Tube
Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgg-HuVl2io)

 

Write data stories to go with 5 star data publishing to demonstrate value of
data to public and decision-makers (e.g. AOL Government:
