    Lightbulb A free digital society - Presentation at UCLan Speaker: Richard Stallman

    Found out that Richard Stallman aka GNU guy, is going to be doing a talk at UCLan on 2nd March 2011.

    Due to restrictions on accommodation size, you need to register for this event, but it is free.

    The lecture will amongst other things cover hot topics, such as the impact of recent projects such as Wikileaks, on the global digital world and wider audiences.

    More info on my site wicher.co.uk, or head to TheIET.org registration page

    Not fair ... in Preston on 2nd and already got a session in London for the evening of 3rd. Can't do both so I expect to have a full run down of the chat from members who do attend.
