Hello members of the National Data Services Interest Group,
Kathleen approached us with an idea to develop some "country reports" in
the lead up to the Denver Data Week. I think it is a great idea and I'd
propose we do some initial planning work using this shared folder:
Maybe a first stab at a description of what we are planning to do and then
perhaps some templates etc. Anyone feel free to start that work ( I am on
leave for the next couple of weeks).
I would propose a phone hookup to kick this activity off on 26th July at
1pm GMT non daylight savings time or:
Pacific Time 6:00am
Eastern Time 9:00am
GMT (no daylight saving) 1:00pm
Auckland 1:00amAustralian Eastern 11:00pm
Unless any very keen players can't make that time. (apologies Aukland and
Pacific! - we'll share the pain another time)
