Open Tech 2008 is an informal, low cost one-day conference on technology, society and low-carbon living, featuring Open Source ways of working and technologies that anyone can have a go at.
We don't usually flag events on this blog, instead we use Upcoming to publish events. Open Tech is exceptional because Open Rights Group was conceived at this conference in 2005. Our sessions at Open Tech 2008 will review the giant steps we've made and look forward to even greater things.
The programme is a three-streamed feast of 60 talks from the likes of mySociety, No2ID, OpenStreetMap, the Power of Information task force, ourselves and many others. Our sessions kick-start the day, beginning at 10.30am, when we'll share the stage with No2ID to present our current programme of works. The second slot at 11.30am will features Danny O'Brien telling the story of ORG and asking for your suggestions to help chart our future course. Recordings will be made available.
Besides these seminars, we're rounding up a posse of staff, directors, advisors and volunteers for a few drinks after the formal sessions close at 7.15pm. We're inviting everyone who cares about their digital rights to help us celebrate ORG and spot future issues. Here's all the details you need to be a part of Open Tech 2008:
