Richard Grant talk - postponed.

Oxford Hackspace - Oxford Hackspace aims to be an accessible community workshop in Oxford, UK, open to all and supporting initiative, learning, creativity and the social good in all of its best forms.

Formally founded in March, and in the process of securing its first permanent space, come and find out how to get involved. There will be a short introduction and some discussion of what current members are already up to - including an interactive plasma display to demonstrate control of a fusion reactor.

Praxis LIVE - Praxis LIVE is an open-source, graphical environment for rapid development of intermedia performance tools, projections and interactive spaces; developed by Oxford artist & technologist Neil C Smith. Neil first introduced Praxis LIVE very early in its development in 2011. Find out the current status of the project, some of its new features, and its use in recent interactive projects by Digital Prisoners (with Naomi Morris). Will include a demonstration of live-coded OpenGL video effects and bindings to TinkerForge ( http://www.tinkerforge.com ).
