Bibhusan and YoungInnovations were involved in an early Nepal country study by Aid Info. An indicator of how the scene is developing since then comes from the success of their recent Hackathon, organised to coincide with a worldwide series of Hackathons, and described here in an AidInfo blog. Developers experimented with data exposed on Open Nepal, producing simple but effective applications such as this one comparing fuel prices in India and Nepal - addressing a hot issue locally.
The group, along with the World Bank and other partners are developing a programme of Open Data activities in June this year, which we will report on when details are available.
