Next Gen Developer Web x.0, conferences and more...

Well another month and another London Girl Geek Dinner has been organised, and this time the hostess is Katy Pearce! (Well done Katie for taking the initiative!) She has managed to get Cory Doctorow to come and do a talk on all things techie, sci-fi and geeky! There are already 25 people signed up to the event and it is looking like places are getting filled fast

The rules of engagement for this event are the same as all the rest... guys, bring a girl with you (after all it is only polite considering this is a London Girl Geek Dinner). The last event was great fun and I am sure this one will be just as good as the last one.

Speakers

Featuring Cory Doctorow!

Cory is, in his words, "an activist, a writer, a blogger, a public speaker, and a technology person." He is also one of four editors on the most linked-to blog around, boingboing.net. From 2002 until January of this year, Cory was the Director of European Affairs for the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), a technology advocacy nonprofit that works to upload liberty in technology law, policy and standards. Now he remains an EFF fellow, but is focusing more on writing. Cory is also on a number of tech-related advisory boards and boards of directors, including those of the Participatory Culture Foundation, the Open Rights Group, the MetaBrainz Foundation, Technorati Inc, Onion Networks, and others; as well as the conference committee for the O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference. He also co-founded the open source P2P technology company OpenCola, which was sold to OpenText in 2003. To learn more about Cory, check out this page: http://www.craphound.com/

Last night I attended a networking event run by Women In Technology, with the topic of Flexibility in the workplace. There were 2 very different keynote speakers, a panel debate and then a chance to eat and drink and chat....
