Transparent techies gather in Oxford

Barcamping trip to the Dreaming Spires

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

The end of July will see a British BarCamp in Oxford to discuss transparency and openness in government, cyber activism, data and identity protection and the ethics of social media.

The event will be held on Sunday 26 July somewhere in Oxford, although organisers are still looking for a venue and sponsorship.

Organisers are concerned that the UK has become a surveillance society and that commercial organisations are increasingly snooping on us, too.

BarCamps are a sort of open source conference or hackers' meeting - ideally all attendees would also give a presentation and everyone is expected to publicise the event both before and afterwards.

More info here.

The event is free and is limited to 50 people, although that may change if organisers find a decent sized venue. ®
