The Open Knowledge Foundation was founded in 2004. It is structured like a free software foundation, but for open data projects.

OKF produces a data package registry free software project and open service - CKAN and ckan.net. The software is being used for the data portal at data.gov.uk. See also thoughts on Location in CKAN

Packages in the Geo namespace on CKAN, the listings need enhanced metadata, and ratings would help establish priorities for turning registry entries for data or services, into automatically downloadable data packages.
