Following up on Tim's e-mail re possible speakers on open development (and getting to grips with the mailing list - apols) ...

... At the risk of blowing our own trumpet, ONE is one of the first (international) NGOs' to articulate its vision of open development and to explain how it relates to the issues that we campaign on.

This http://one.org/c/us/issue/4299/ gives an idea of our thinking in terms of open development, as a number of you will have seen.

As does this http://www.one.org/blog/2011/10/04/open-development-gives-the-power-back-to-citizens/ a blog from October 2011, which seeks to explain what open development is.

The blog contains a link to what I think is - and will become - the seminal piece on "Open Development" produced by the World Bank. http://wbi.worldbank.org/wbi/devoutreach/2011/september A number of contributors to that publication - or people who were close to it - would make excellent keynote speakers on open development.

Rakesh Rajani would be the obvious choice and would be wonderful, but I am sure that he is inundated with invitations. Other options would be Caroline Anstey (World Bank) or Aleem Walji or Sanjay Pradhan (World Bank Institute). I am sure that others will have additional suggestions.
