See below for our first enquiry regarding OKCON -- and we haven't even 
sent out the CFP! BTW I think we really need to get speaker shortlists 
asap and then send out invites so we can start populating the programme. 
Currently the only firm suggestion is Frank Kelly (from Jo). Ideas I've 
had is:

   * Someone from Pleiades (perhaps Sean Gillies -- Jo I assume you 
know/know of him ...)
     * http://www.ckan.net/package/read/pleiades
   * Gavin Starks (AMEE) -- Jo's kind of voted against this but I think 
he would give a good presentation ...
   * Peter Suber -- could we get him across somehow or other ...
   * Paul Miller (or Rob Styles) from Talis
   * Martin Brett (Medieval Historian -- Cambridge)
     * talk on distributed editing of canon law manuscripts
   * Someone on open environmental data

Suggestions/comments welcome ...

Dear Ms Facey,

We're currently in the process of putting together the list 'invited'
speakers as well as a Call for Proposals for the 'open' sessions (the
day is generally split into roughly two equal sections with
presentations from invited speakers followed by slots -- 'open' sessions
-- that are filled from the CFP). So the best thing to do is probably to
respond to the CFP when it goes out. To be notified of this I suggest
you subscribe to the okfn-announce list -- see link below -- and if you
have any further questions or would even like to propose a session
directly please don't hesitate to get in contact.
