>To: announce at ukuug.org
>OpenTech is an informal, low-cost one-day grassroots event that we put
>on every couple of years for people in the UK to get together and talk
>about digital technology, its impacts on society and - newly added
>this year - the environment.  In previous years we heard from the
>founder of the Internet Archive and the man behind BitTorrent, saw the
>launch of TheyWorkForYou.com, and triggered the creation of the Open
>Rights Group.  We also had a presentation from a chap who'd made a
>semi-reliable clock out of an old PC and a prawn sandwich, so it's not
>all serious stuff.
>We're accepting proposals for talks between today and the 31st March,
>The full details are below, and there's more information on our
>website (http://www.ukuug.org/events/opentech2008/).
