Last October I was at the 2nd Brazilian Information Technology Meeting to speak about the current state of Open Data in European Union countries. Due to some hardware-related problems, I couldn’t publish anything about this conference earlier, but several reports are online anyway. A small part of the notes I took back then, however, may still be of general interest, so here they are. One point worth noting is not news, but the confirmation, even during this conference, of the Brazilian interest for Public Software.
