Introduction to come from Ross Anderson

Here's an idea. I was at the Europarl yesterday and a green MEP said it would be great to have a "tranparency app" that would enable her and her colleagues to look up the registered interests of people who come to meetings. This would involve (a) writing apps for android and iphone (b) having a service that would go to the various registers of interests in Brussels, London etc, aggregate entries and make them available (c) some smarts to make it usable. For example it would help that if Mr Johann Schmidt were registered as getting funding from Infineon AG, that the app would say that Infineon makes smartcards for use in banking and as identity cards.
