AktiviX II - Another System is Possible!

10-12th September 2004 — Sheffield, England

A weekend for environmental / animal rights / peace / social justice /anti-capitalist campaigners / activists and cultural creatives to get to know GNU/Linux, each other, and to discuss political strategies and actions around Information and Communication Technology

Free Software is an alternative to the products of other proprietary software corporations who do not share their code in a collaborative community or creative commons. Once a plaything for geeks, GNU/Linux is now an impressive, stable, secure, virus-free and versatile operating system.

AktiviX is a chance to try installing, running, and securing a GNU/Linux system, to share experiences and enthusiasm with other activists and hackers, and make plans for the future.

Whatever the level of ability, confidence or experience with computers all activists, grass-roots groups, social workers, and others who are interested in moving to Free software for a Free Culture are welcome.

There will also be a meeting about an AktiviX:CommunityServer project. The vision is to take control of informational flows through community building. People are encouraged to discuss participation in this collaborative effort with their local collectives and friends, -bring ideas and experiences!

Sessions

At AktiviX II there will be sessions on...

Praticalities

Access and Childcare

The space that is being considered has level access.

What are we going to do about childcare?

Perhaps people with any special needs should put their requirements on a wiki page or send an email to the organisers about it?

Venues

Sheffield, where could we use? How many can Sheffield fit?

Spectrum Centre, Brunswick Road, Pitsmoor The Spectrum Centre ?

Sounds good to me :-)
me too :-}

Accomodation

Floors in private places, squats and community centres? The "church place" that was used for Indymedia UK Network meeting was good - is it available?

Food

Any local Food not Bombs chapters? If not, then this is a good opportunity start one ;-)
