Interested in Open Knowledge? Want to meet others who are? …Look no further! OKFN and DevCSI are arranging the first Meet-up here in Edinburgh, with the Open Biblio project team taking the helm.

OKFN Meet-ups are friendly and informal evenings for people to get together and talk about open data. London and Cambridge have had huge successes, with like-minded people getting together to share, discuss and argue all elements of openness, and now it’s time for Edinburgh to join the party.

Top venue Ghillie Dhu is hosting us next Tuesday, 13th March from 7pm and we will be joined by representatives of other projects including Textus, the School of Open Data and DevCSI.

We already have guest speakers lined-up to do lightening talks (informal 2-3 minute presentations) on the Public Domain Review, the Open Data Handbook and CKAN, as well as Open Biblio; if you would like to talk about a particular area of Open Data or related subjects – whether a project you’re involved with already or your aspirations for the future of openness – then get in touch! naomi.lillie [@]

If you are interested in seeing what we’re up to, or talking open data / knowledge in general, do come along: all are welcome. This promises to be a great opportunity for some Edinburgh-based folk (and anyone willing to travel!) to get together to discuss ideas, projects and generally set the world to rights over a brew.

So, what do you need to do?
