texts from Cambridge college libraries.

* Matthew Brett, MRC CBU, on python, open source and open data in 

* Martin Brett, (TBC) Cambridge History Department, on the Ivo of 
Chartres project, one of the first collaborative efforts to produce an 
open edition of a medieval text.

national cycle mapping projects.

Please do circulate the event information to anyone you think might be

### More Information

Are you interested in the social, legal and technological issues related
to Open Knowledge? Ever wondered about how things like "Open Access" and
"Open Source" could be relevant to you. If so come along to the
"Cambridge Open Knowledge Meetup" to hear updates about recent
developments and discuss the problems and potential of open approaches
to knowledge creation.

The focus at these events is on open discussion though we do start out
with some (brief) presentations. If you'd like to give a talk on
something you've been working on (or thinking about) please let us know.
