Hi all,

We presented about various open-source open data platform solutions to
this group a couple of months ago, and now fyi we've just submitted to
the Knight News Challenge a proposal to deliver a *free* full
open-source hosted data platform for local governments based on one of
the plaltforms we discussed:


Based on the Drupal-based "DKAN" variant of CKAN software, and
combined with new low-cost multi-tenant Drupal hosting capabilities,
we think it is the best way to rapidly cause an explosion of local
government data to become published and discoverable online in a
sustainable standards-compliant manner.

We will be continuing to refine the proposal and would always love
your offline feedback, and, if you like the proposal, please do also
consider posting your comments and "applause" on the submission online
to help generate awareness and interest.  Just click "applaud this" in
the right-hand sidebar. You'll briefly register a free OpenIdeo
account or login securely through Facebook Connect.

And/or please do pass the word-- here is a proposed sample tweet:

Thank you for your support!
