Well we discussed this briefly before, but maybe it would be a good idea to 
use the Co-Op as a target for the first open information campaign? If we can 
get them to ensure that all of their web sites are free software friendly and 
only use open technologies then it would be both a worthwhile win and a good 
rallying call for future campaigns.

I've CC-ed Rufus Pollock of the Open Knowledge Foundation and Friends of the 
Creative Domain since he's also doing this sort of thing in Cambridge and 
with the UKUUG, if I'm not mistaken.

Rufus, AFFS people, what do you say? We would need to:

* Research what is OK and what isn't
* Research who to target in the Co-Op and how we should do it
* Develop a strategy and timetable and start working on it

I shouldn't imagine it'd be an awful lot of work, but it'd need volunteers.
