Copyfighters' picnic in the rain

Last month, Cory Doctorow passed over the reins of the London Copyfighers' Drunken Brunch and Talking Shop to ORG, and yesterday we had our first brunch in the new format - a picnic in Hyde Park, followed then by the traditional oration at Speakers' Corner. Unfortunately for us, my prediction a month ago that we'd break the run of sunny Sundays we've had since Cory started this a year ago was entirely on the money. Some brave souls ventured forth despite the rain, though, and despite the crowd being small, we had some great talks and managed to steal away a good percentage of listeners from the usual crowd of ladder-toting fringe cases.
