Speakers - This month's fantastic line-up includes: 

Alok Jha, @alokjha

Journalist Alok Jha’s most recent assignment took him to the Antarctic – and kept him there. As a member of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition, Alok got a first-hand taste of just how harsh conditions can be, after the Russian expedition ship carrying him became trapped in ice. For weeks, Alok sent stories, tweets and updates from the stranded ship, and charted the crew’s rescue, as well as telling stories of his temporary frozen home.

Eliot Higgins, aka Brown Moses, @Brown_Moses

Eliot Higgins has been blogging about the Syrian civil war since 2012. Under the alias Brown Moses, Eliot began to build up an expertise in Syrian weaponry from his home in the UK. He became a self-taught authority, proving the use of weapons that the Russian and Syrian governments had denied were in circulation. He has been cited by The New York Times and human rights groups as a source of information, and profiled by the Guardian.

Lightning Pitches: our usual 3-minute flashes of inspiration include…

Thomas Figg, @tef, Code Club

 - Code Club brings code to kids. Here is a dancing robot.

 - Ben Fogarty, Shorthand, an application for building immersive stories.

 - Dan Sinker, head of Knight-Mozilla Open news.

 - More will likely be added...

    The last three Hacks Hackers London talks have been getting better exponentially. The two talks last night really focused on what is being achieved and positive impact, as well as what is being produced and developed.
