Hi Virgil,

Thanks for reaching out about this subject.

I have spoken to Vesna (that I add to the cc of this thread in case she wants to chime in too) that runs the ripe atlas program in various occasions as to how we can in some way collaborate or join our efforts.
I think the last consensus we reached is that our efforts are both very important, though complementary.

We are always open to seeing if there are some ways to collaborate more in the future, but from what I understand the policy and governance model of ripe does not allow for the sort of data collection we are currently mainly focussing on as OONI.

That said we would be delighted to have them attend the OONI ADINA15 hackathon at the Italian parliament: https://ooni.torproject.org/adina15/

Virgil: What particular direction of collaboration did you envision?
