Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

The creators of LugRadio, a fortnightly radio programme that takes an irreverent look at Linux and open source, are holding a Linux community event this summer in Wolverhampton. It is aimed at open source fans, rather than corporate IT buyers, and the emphasis is very much on fun, rather than sales pitches.

For five measly pounds, you will have access to an all day bar (although you will still have to pay for the beer, obviously), a non corporate exhibition, LAN gaming and a Question Time-style panel event where you will get to quiz some of the great and the good on your pet topics.

As well as all that, the organisers have put together a really interesting looking list of speakers. There will be presentations from the likes of Bill Thompson, a tech commentator who does a lot of work for Auntie Beeb; Rufus Pollock, digital rights campaigner; Sarah Ewen, head of Sony's Playstation Linux and Ian Bell, co-creator of the classic game - Elite. Gervase Markham, probably best known for his involvement with Mozilla, will also be giving a talk, entitled "Phishing: Conning the Unwary for Fun and Profit".

If you can stand it, or can still stand after the thrill of access to an all day bar, the next day there will be paintball. Hoo-yah. Find out more here. ®
