LugRadio Live returns

More geekiness than you could shake a light-sabre at

Remote control for virtualized desktops

After the success of last summer's bash, the founders of the geektastic* radio show LugRadio are holding another live event for the open source community.

Again, the emphasis is on fun rather than sales pitches, as should be made clear from the fact that the entry fee is still a mere five of your English pounds. Once you're in, you'll be able to wander the halls of a non-corporate exhibition, join a LAN gaming session, meet with likeminded souls for birds-of-a-feather discussions, or retire to the all-day bar.

Sadly, we are told that the beer is less free than the software.

The organisers have also put on three tracks of speakers including Mark Shuttleworth of Ubuntu, Sun open source head Simon Phipps, and Stephen Lamb all the way from Microsoft.

Among others, Tom Steinberg will be there to talk about the MySociety and Pledgebank websites, and Gervase Markham will also give forth on "How to Destroy the Free Software Movement". Presumably this is an ironic title rather than actual advice, but just in case, could someone distract Mr Lamb shortly before this session begins?

LugRadio Live is scheduled for 22 and 23 July and will again be held in Wolverhampton at the University. More info, including how to get your sweaty paws on a ticket, can be found here. ®
