Anyone in London fancy going to this, and speaking about microformats?


        The Office of Public Sector Information, part of The National
        Archives, is holding a conference to ask re-users of public
        sector information to shape the future of public sector
        information re-use.  The event is open to anyone interested in
        public sector re-use and will take place on the 12 January 2008,
        at the Spey & Ness Rooms, City Inn.

        "The aim of the web channel is to present public sector
        information with a commercial value in a user friendly way that
        will encourage its re-use and simplify its uptake, by improving
        interaction between departments and end-users.  The format of
        the final channel will have been shaped by the user community
        contributions through the web channel forum:


        and this BarCamp 'unconference'.

        "The event follows the decision to launch a web-based channel as
        recommended by the Power of Information report that will
        "improve the Government's responsiveness to demands for public
        sector information". If you would like to attend the event you
        can register and shape the agenda by visiting:


        "The 'unconference' will take place at Spey & Ness Rooms, City
        Inn, 30 John Islip Street, Westminster, London."

I have added microformats to the proposed topics for discussion, even
though I shall not be able to attend.
