ORG Scotland discussion day with Charlie Stross, Jim Killock and others

ORG is fund raising to hire staff in Scotland to deal with devolved digital rights campaigns.

There are many possible issues, including entitlement cards, data sharing and health data. We need to understand how big the problems are, what can be fixed and what needs to be stopped. We will talk about how and what we can do, as individuals, and as ORG Scotland.

We'll also talk about how we reach out to communities across Scotland to get the project started.

If you don't wish to use MeetUp, email scotland at openrightsgroup dot org [masked] to reserve a place.

    Hi everyone, I hope you enjoyed the talks and learned as much as I did. It was great to see such a large group coming together in Edinburgh.

    Unfortunately I can no longer attend tomorrow as my kids have been invited to a birthday party. I was so looking forward to it, but the sprogs have to come first and I can't get anyone else to take them.

      We have no such policies (tho I kinda want a space invader playing board games at the meetup now ....). Also, if anyone else reading this doesn't want to register with Meetup they can email the address in the description instead.

      You don't have to use meetup. You can just email Scotland at org dot org
