| Today I have participated to an international 
| meeting in Madrid on the reuse of Public 
| Sector Information. I came to gather as much 
| information and food for thought as possible 
| for my new research on Open Data for an Open 
| Society and wasn't deluded.
| Public Sector Information, or PSI for short, 
| is very easy to define in a few words (even if 
| managing it in the right way may be one of the 
| most difficult things in the world): this 
| terms defines all the information and 
| documents that any Public Administration (PA) 
| produces and uses during its ordinary tasks: 
| everything from digital maps and weather 
| forecast to city budgets, tenders and 
| management of public utilities like water or 
| energy.
