[apologies for the tumblr DNS problems for the last few days — should be sorted now]
OpenTech is nearly upon us. We’ve just sent an email to everyone who has pre-registered, and will close pre-registration at 5pm today. So if you’ve not already got your ticket, http://www.opentech.org.uk/2013/registration . There will be some tickets available on the door, although I’m not sure how many. Watch @opentechuk on Saturday morning for how many and when they run out. Please try and have a five pound note for your entry donation (or the ID that gets you in for free) , especially if you’re aiming to get there early. It makes life so much easier for the people on the door (and the bar opens from 11, so there’s little reason to be too early).
If you’re working on something interesting, visionOnTV will be in the bar all day with their live TV/webcasting rig. If you’re interested in a short informal chat, drop Marc an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and arrange a time to chat about what it is you work on. VisionOntv is an independent Internet TV station reporting on social change campaigns and projects and curates unique channels of content with more than 15000 films.
Also on Saturday, is Eurovision. Ewan can’t speak this year, as he’s commentating Eurovision; so your iPod shuffles are safe (ish), but he and speaker Terence Eden have been working on an app for the Eurovision Song Contest Alternative Commentary. iPhone and iPad users can drown out Graham Norton and listen to the sweet, sweet sound of Ewan instead. Includes live voting (just for fun) and all the official videos etc. Works anywhere in the world where you can get data.
See you on Saturday
Sam and David
