This was the first full regular week of this year. Although I worked on many different things, all in all it was mostly an unhurried week, except for an evening sprint to finish up a report. Some of the things filling up this week:

  • Several discussions with departmental heads at the Province Overijssel to make open data relevant to existing policy goals
  • Planning an in-depth session with a nature and environment department along the same lines as the previous point
  • A session with the Frisian open data working group to create the year plan for extending their regional open data platform
  • Hired an intern to research ethical aspects of data governance and emergent data technologies
  • Doing Q4 2017 VAT bookkeeping for my companies
  • Wrote a report for the European Commission evaluating the impact of the PSI Directive in the Netherlands
