Open Knowledge 1.0 took place last Saturday at Limehouse Town Hall in London. Over 70 people came to hear the panels and participate in the open space. Material (including speaker presentations) and related links from the event are being posted online at

We’ve had excellent feedback and in my opinion (though of course I may be biased!) the presentations and discussions were some of the best I’ve seen on these topics. As I said in my introduction to the event, we are currently at a very interesting juncture with so much that we can port from other areas (software primarily) into the open knowledge domain (everything from release schedules to version control) and I look forward to future ‘okcons’ to see how the nascent open knowledge revolution develops into maturity.

Finally I should express a big thank-you to everyone who helped make it happen — like WSFII this was a joint effort, not just of the core organizers, but also of all those who spoke or presented, helped setup, man the door, or even just made suggestions on the mailing list and irc.
