I'd be very grateful if you would consider forwarding the following 
email to your respective LUGs. Thank you - Dan, Linux Outlaws.


OggCamp <http://oggcamp.org/> is a free software / free culture 
unconference organised by the presenters of the Ubuntu UK Podcast 
<http://podcast.ubuntu-uk.org/> and Linux Outlaws 
<http://linuxoutlaws.com/>. This year's OggCamp will take place at *The 
Black-E <http://theblack-e.co.uk/> in Liverpool, UK* on the *1st and 2nd 
of May 2010*, *10am - 5pm both days*. It'll be 2 full days of Free 
Software, Free Culture and Free Thinking. We have a large venue booked 
and expect 200-300 people. If you want a chance to meet others who are 
passionate about technology and share ideas this is a great chance. We 
have many top FOSS developers from around the world joining us.


If you want to get a feel for the event, have a look at our recap of 
OggCamp 2009 <http://oggcamp.org/2009/>.

*What is an Barcamp/unconference?*
More formal conferences have the usual people speaking every time; an 
unconference is an opportunity to interact with new and interesting 
people. There won't be a published list of speakers before the event, 
everyone generates content on the day. That can include you! The 
schedule is decided by the attendees and we'll have a voting system for 

See what others are already proposing - http://ideas.oggcamp.org/talks

*What Is An Ogg?*
Ogg Vorbis <http://www.vorbis.com/> is a completely open, patent-free, 
professional audio encoding and streaming technology with all the 
benefits of Open Source. OggCamp is about technology, Open Source and 
Freedom, but also about music, art, politics, community, creativity and 
much more. We chose to use the term Ogg because for us it reflects all 
these things pretty neatly.

*Get Involved:
*Please add your own ideas for talks and activities to our public wiki 
<http://ideas.oggcamp.org/> – help make the event what you want it to 
be! It doesn't even have to be about technology strictly, it could be 
anything. We have about 60 slots available and all are welcome - 
ideas.oggcamp.org <http://ideas.oggcamp.org/>

You can also meet other attendees on IRC in *#oggcamp* on the Freenode 

If you have a project you'd like to promote or exhibit about you can
