Open Tech 2008 – Saturday July 5th

UKUUG and friends are organising what should be a very interesting event called Open Tech 2008 on Saturday July 5th. This event is described as

…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.

Previous events by the same team have been excellent.  And this one will feature a session on the Power of Information agenda during the afternoon.

You can register online.
