Open Data Brighton and Hove Message Board › One week to go...
With exactly a week to go to the Open-data Cities Conference, I just wanted to update you with the planned running order (see below).
I know a lot of ODBH members have already bought tickets. If you're not one of them, there's still time to buy one of the few remaining tickets.
I hope you've seen/heard a lot of the buzz about the conference.
Most recent was the BoingBoing preview, which resulted in more than 300 visits to the conference website in less than 12 hours. And for which I am grateful to Adam Oxford (@adamoxford), who alerted them to our event.
I'm also grateful to Adam Tinworth (@adders) for a great blogpost today and to Frank le Duc (aka @BHcitynews) for an equally fine article in The Latest magazine.
Let's hope the conference lives up to the hype. I hope to see you there.
Best wishes and thanks,
