A get together for journalists (hacks), developers (hackers) and designers to share information and ideas.

What is happening at the next meet-up?

Hacks/Hackers global coordinator and New York co-organiser Chrys Wu (@MacDiva (http://twitter.com/#%21/macdiva) on Twitter) will be in town to talk about what Hacks/Hackers chapters (http://hackshackers.com/chapters/) around the world have been doing. She will also asking about our plans and ambitions, so come with your ideas on where you would like the group to go.

Chrys is both a journalist and a coder and is behind NYC Ruby Women.

Developer Laurian Gridinoc (@gridinoc (http://twitter.com/gridinoc) on Twitter) - who is soon to be embedded within the BBC newsroom - will tell us about the proposal which resulted in him being named one of the five Knight-Mozilla fellows (http://www.journalism.co.uk/news/knight-mozilla-names-news-technology-fellowship-winners/s2/a546633/).

Laurian has followed an interesting path. While studying medicine he co-founded a brand strategy and interactive consultancy in Romania. He then followed his interest in the semantic web through a masters in computational linguistics and research into semantic navigation at Knowledge Media Institute (Open University). For the past year he has been implementing applications using semantic web technologies at the technology innovation company Talis (http://www.talis.com/).

He will be coming from Birmingham to Brighton to speak to us.
