      This was my first visit to this meetup, and the group was interesting, from vaired backgrounds and with varied experience in Open Data, Government Open Data and Gov 2.0. The level of interest in Open Data was very high. Great ad-hoc conversations and networking after the formal presentation.

    At the risk of offending people who've obviously been working at this for a long time, I'd suggest that the meeting needed more people/ associations looking to use open data and more vendors/ private interests looking to either support the initiative or sell products to potential open data users/ developers.

    Other than that, it was a good effort. It will be interesting to see what sort of public advocacy/ initiatives come out of the meeting.

      Fair comment Rob. But I didn't say there were none. I said there should be more ;-)
