ORG at BarCampLondon2

Over the weekend approximately 150 technophiles gathered for BarCampLondon2, an über-geeky conference on all things related to the web and an ideal opportunity to spread the word about ORG.

In addition to ORG supporters talking generally to people about ORG and digital rights issues, the programme included the following presentations:

  • ORG – The British EFF: Protecting Your Bits (Glyn Wintle). A general introduction to ORG, current issues and how to get involved.
  • e-Voting: World Domination Is Ours! (Sheila Thomson). A spoof evil-dictator presentation, pointing out the strengths of traditional voting methods and how e-voting makes it much easier to control the outcome of an election. It was captured on film by Ian Forrester

By the end of the conference there was a noticeable buzz of conversation about ORG and a stream of people heading off to find out more.
