Open Tech 2009

Good to see more openness being spread around:

*What is OpenTech 2009?*

- Open Tech 2009 is an informal, low cost, one-day conference on slightly different approaches to technology, democracy and community. Thanks to 4IP for sponsoring the event.photo BY-NC by bill thompson

*What do we need?*

- Proposals from people who want to give a presentation, run a panel, organise a tutorial, or run a demo of something new and interesting on something that they think matters or getting people to help.

- Publicity - please blog this announcement, write a newspaper article, forward to mailing lists, and tell your friends!

What topics do we hope to cover?

- Mashups, open data and security
- Disaster politics and technology
- Future of media distribution
- Community engagement
- Democracy 2.0
- Highlights, lowlights and lessons learnt
- Long term thinking on big problems and massive opportunities
- Tutorials & Workshops - share what you know

- If you've got an interesting proposal that doesn't fit into any of the categories above, please send it in anyway!

It's on Saturday 4th July 2009 in Central London.
