This page will contain some highlights relating mostly to OpenData, OpenScience, Ulm, Baden-Württemberg, Neu-Ulm, Bavaria and Germany. It will probably be the only English-language page on this wiki, and some of the linked articles may be in German. The basis for this is mostly Namnatulco's twitter feed.
