Hi All

OKFN are running a free* open science hackday in London (and online) in a
couple of weeks time, it would be great to see some of you there either
with your own projects or to help out other people. You don't need to be a
programmer, there are plenty of writing/design/idea generating/media tasks
and projects you could help with as well and it's a lot of fun!

Do pass this on to anyone else you think might be interested and sign up so
we have an idea of numbers (instructions below)


* Sadly this doesn't extend to lunch but there are plenty of shops around!

The next Open Science hackday will be taking place in a few weeks and it
would be great to see some of you in person or online!

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: http://okfn.org/contact/)

Sign up: http://okfnpad.org/sciencewg-hackday-jul7

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 YOU.

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!
