Check out this great collage from 9 year old Carla, sent over to us by her Dad, Martin Kaltenböck! This makes Carla our youngest Open Data Ambassador yet ;-)

Martin says:

I had a chat with my daughter Carla (9 years old) after the Warsaw Camp 2011 about the idea of Open Government Data, as well as about what happened in Warsaw at and around the event – and as she was already collecting open data and OKFN stickers from the last 1.5 years of my open data journey, she created her collage on Open Data inspired by our discussion!

She also knows now – and thinks that this is important – that looking for schools or kindergartens in a city like Vienna on a mobile phone needs the basic data behind; that this data is collected mainly by the public administration of the city; and that we can realise this mobile app only if we can use and re-use this data…

Despite her knowledge about OGD, the main reason for the collage was creativity and her artistic disposition ;-)
