    AW Man! on the one night that I'm out of Cape Town this month :( When will the next one be? I work at the Western Cape Government and am looking to pioneer Open Data in government via an API. Would love to hear some thoughts...

      Yes - please. How long should I talk for? I can modify the presentation to fit into the amount of time available

      We're going to give those that would like to present about ten minutes to do so. We will have a data projector set up. Looking forward to hearing all about it!

    Would have loved to come, but hosting a Fireside chat on Future of Online Learning that day at Mozilla. See you at the next one.

      We have an informal agenda: starting with a round of intros / lightening talks, where you can introduce yourself and any projects you are working on. You don't need to prepare anything for this, it is meant to be informal. If you would like to demo something, please let us know, but any last minute demos are also most welcome. We currently have one project confirmed to demo. We look forward to an evening of brainstorming and discussing ideas!
