  • make it easier to manage sleeping / food and stuff

I wish you all the best and know that you will have a great time - I would've very much liked to have had the opportunity to meet and talk with other folk in the flesh - however hopefully another time soon.

in the meantime people might like to take a look at to see some recent stuff we did in Edinburgh for Software Freedom Day.


  • I hope to come from London
  • I do mind smokers; a safe floor is enough for me.


  • I'm a total beginner with Linux, so I'm coming to learn as much as I can.
  • I will need a place to crash, and I'm not too fond of vegan food, so I can self cater (Biological reasons, 'nuff said). Also, I am a smoker.

Sheffield bod - I want to come as a layperson, to see if the land of open source is somewhere I could travel to.

There's at least two other really biggo things I want to yatter to people about, as well as learning what I can:

For a number of years, I've been harbouring a desire to set up a 'centre' in Sheffield, working title of SHARE - Sheffield Active Research Centre.

1. ICT - and especially social uses of - is vital to the DNA of that vision. Which some people might think is odd, given that I haven't programmed since my Atari ST blew up in 1990.)

2. The next share issue of the company I work for will release some funds for centre development: this one will go into a big pot for the directors to mull over. Which is to say, this is a centre that could actually happen - but not until way into 2006. So we could start planning now!

3. It could become, amongst other things, a hub of ICT radical activity and a key developer of social ICT goods - for free. I'll explain more later...!
