### More Information
Are you interested in the social, legal and technological issues related
to Open Knowledge? Ever wondered about how things like "Open Access" and
"Open Source" could be relevant to you. If so come along to the
"Cambridge Open Knowledge Meetup" to hear about recent developments,
discuss the legal and licensing issues, and debate the practicalities of
open approaches to knowledge "production".
The focus at these events is on open discussion though we do start out
with some (brief) presentations. At this first event we'll be hearing from:
* Rufus Pollock, Emmanuel College and the Open Knowledge Foundation - on
discovering and installing open knowledge packages using CKAN.
* Francis Irving of PublicWhip.org and mySociety - on freeing Government
data, and travel-time maps.
* Jim Downing of the Unilever Cambridge Centre for Molecular Informatics
- on Open Source and Open Acces in Chemistry.
Generally, the programme is quite flexible so if you'd like to give a
brief talk or update on something you've been working on or thinking
about please just write to us and we can try and slot you in.
