The bad news is: I have a cold and still feel a bit sick today. The good news is: it’s Open Data Day and as I am writing this I am helping making that event happen in Berlin as a part of my new Job.

Though I’ll be more taking care of the organizational tasks, I will probably contribute to that day with a small open data project as well; though I am still unsure about what it’ll be.

Since the scope of this years open data day is European Union themed, I thought of creating a public transit map containing statistics as well, making it possible to compare the different European public transit systems with each other.

Speaking of the European Union, there are protests against the EU copyright law happening today as well. Anna Biselli from Netzpolitik.org has made a good overview of all the demonstrations happening all over Europe today and within the next few month.
