Hello Lovely Open Knowledge Foundation People: 

I like to invite you all to a OKFest Fringe Event  called Open DataControl; Convergathon. 

Open Data Control is a new discussion being launched in OKFoundation with this event, which is aimed at discussing how opening data controls can address privacy and security issues we face with data being opened.   

The convergathon is a mixer between people and projects that champion data control in their tech and work and the Open Knowledge community.  We are holding an event this weekend in Berlin at 

On Saturday: (July12)
 We will be hosting several panels, discussions and people via video link and live to speak about their work in data control/privacy and policy.
