A one day conference on DIY technologies, from the UKUUG and NTK.
Sponsored by backstage.bbc.co.uk, Open Tech 2005 is an informal, low cost, one-day conference about technologies that anyone can have a go at, from "Open Source"-style ways of working to repurposing everyday electronics hardware.Worth attending just for the Ted Nelson talk, I'd suspect.
Taking place on 23rd July, 2005, in Hammersmith, London, the line-up currently features:
- Ted Nelson, inventor of hypertext, on where the web went wrong
- The official launch of the backstage.bbc.co.uk developer network, opening up BBC content for you to play with
- Plus: able to record an entire week of all Freeview TV and radio channels, probably the UK's largest (fridge-sized) PVR
Looks like it could be the geek event of the summer...
