of yours too. I would like to invite you to the ITAPA International

we want to focus on the topic of Open Data, Open Knowledge and
Participation. Being a world known expert in this field, we would like
to ask you to give a keynote speech at ITAPA. We know that you are
extremely busy but in case you would be able to come we could arrange
a meeting with people from Utopia (main NGO in Slovakia dealing with
issues of Open Data, Participation, Participative budgets, etc.) and

some synergy between your and their activities.
