I'm about to do something incredibely impulsive and stupid: I've started
writing an Open Knowledge miniconf CFP.

Here's what I've got so far:

I've only spend 5 minutes on it so far, so there's more work to be done,
but I figured I'd send this through in case anybody wanted to suggest
stuff I'd missed so far.

I've *no* idea how I'm going to pull this off, but I'll be damned if I'm
going to let the opportunity slip past without giving it a shot. Any
feedback, input, suggestions, or help that anybody can offer would be
much appreciated!
