Pictured is the data.gov.uk and friends session from Open Tech 2010, which I attended yesterday.
It was one of the sessions that made up part of a great and informative day.
Looking forward to next year’s OpenTech already!

I’ll be attending Open Tech 2010, the “informal, low cost, one-day conference on slightly different approaches to technology, politics and justice”, on Saturday 11 September.
After attending last year, I’m really looking forward to an enjoyable and informative day.
If you’re going – I’ll see you there!

Bids for the venue for WordCamp UK 2011 are now being invited from individuals or groups.
The decision on the winning bid will be subsequently made by the mailing list.
This event, planned to be held on the weekend of 16-17 July 2011, will be the follow-up to WordCamp UK 2010.
Please note the final name of the event may be subject to change.

WordCamp UK 2010 took place in Manchester on the weekend of 17-18 July.
As the co-ordinator of WordCamp UK I’d like to thank all contributors – including:
Those present will be aware of the nature of the discussion towards the end of the final Sunday session about the naming of the 2011 event.
Since the weekend, the feedback from participants is that we build on the experience and enthusiasm gained over three years, and start planning for the follow-up to WordCamp UK 2010, and come back to the question of the name of the event later.
After that it is intended to invite bids against the final form of the requirements.
Because a number of administrative processes have been put in place over the past year, we will have longer timescales on everything that follows from setting the venue – such as arranging sponsors, allowing attendees to get cheaper advance travel tickets and an extended ticket sales window.

The day started at midday at the well attended demonstration, outside Broadcasting House, with a range of speakers and performers, expertly compared by Jon Holmes.
The public consultation, carried out by the BBC Trust, has now closed.
The Trust plans to publish provisional conclusions this summer, and a final strategy in the autumn.
I haven’t seen anyone saying that 6 Music should close, and if the Trust propose to close the station, I’d be very interested to see their arguments.
