Hi All

Just a reminder that the next Open Science hackday will be taking
place in a couple of weeks and it would be great to see some of you in
person or online! Please sign up as soon as you can for numbers and so
we can see what interesting projects people are interested in working

When: Saturday 7 July 2012, 1000-1700 UTC+1
Where: Centre for Creative Collaboration
(http://www.creativecollaboration.org.uk/ ), London
OKFN IRC channel (#okfn on irc.oftc.net and full details of how to
connect (including via a web browser) can be found at:

Our last outing to the Barbican saw a small but dedicated group
working on projects as diverse as services for open access policies,
extracting phylogenetic tree information from PDFs, storing
crowdsourced data in CKAN and more. This time we're going to be bigger
and better with a dedicated space which will hopefully be filled by

If you'd like to come along, please add yourself to the Etherpad
http://okfnpad.org/sciencewg-hackday-jul7 and if you have a specific
idea you'd like to work on, add that too and you'll have a couple of
minutes at the start of the hackday to tell everyone about it so we
can link you up with people who'd like to help.

You don't need to have an idea for anything to work on or even any
coding skills to join, there are plenty of opportunities to get stuck
in with other people's projects and many non-technical tasks,
especially if you like writing or design.

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask and I look forward to
seeing many of you on 7 July!
