Open Letter from Public Geodata

An Open Letter regarding the INSPIRE Directive to Members of the ENVI Committee in the European Parliament was published by Public Geodata yesterday. OKFN has been providing support resources to Public Geodata as part of the Open Geodata awareness raising effort, and Rufus has been doing a fantastic job of sanitising our rhetoric for official consumption.

Excited coverage on boingboing.net got a lot more people coming to sign the petition, which is really great. I talk a bit more on the Mapping Hacks blog about recent coverage of the issue and related awareness efforts.
