Hi Chris

Sounds great! If only it wasn't in bloody London. That's a six-hour journey
each way from here. :-(  Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff, Liverpool and
Manchester are a couple of hours, and just as easy to get to from the rest
of the country as London. [/rant]

Ahem. Having got that off my chest: As a freelance individual loosely
representing a local Transition initiative, which rate should I pay? And is
there any cheap accommodation thereabouts? I'm a bit old and rickety to be
crashing on sofas... :-)

Hello folks,

We?re organising a conference on using the web for activism on 7th
August in London. There will be inspiring talks on activist video,
open source social media, hi-tech direct action and online democracy
(to name a selection). And also spaces for open conversations with
activists, technologists, NGO workers, thinkers and doers.

Would be great to have some folks from HacktionLab/Barncamp there.

You can register at: http://turnfront.com/dotactivist

At dotActivist, we?ll break out of the well-rehearsed conversations
about how online campaigning ?must be done? and explore exciting new
possibilities involving emergent technologies and creative ideas.
We?ll also hear about experiences from activists who have deployed
some of these ideas in the field and learn from what works and what

Along with the presentations, there will be plenty of time for
networking and open conversations so that everyone can share their
ideas and experience.

We?re really looking forward to it, and we hope to see many of you there,

Chris Anderson
7th August 2010 - The Hub, Kings Cross, London
