OggCamp <http://oggcamp.org/> is a free software / free culture unconference
organised by the presenters of the Ubuntu UK
Podcast<http://podcast.ubuntu-uk.org/>and Linux
Outlaws <http://linuxoutlaws.com/>. This year's OggCamp will take place at *The
Black-E <http://theblack-e.co.uk/> in Liverpool, UK* on the *1st and 2nd of
May 2010*, *10am - 5pm (roughly) both days*. It'll be 2 full days of Free
Software, Free Culture and Free Thinking. We have a large venue booked and
expect 200-300 people. If you want a chance to meet others who are
passionate about technology and share ideas this is a great chance. We have
many top FOSS developers from around the world joining us.


If you want to get a feel for the event, have a look at our recap of OggCamp
2009 <http://oggcamp.org/2009/>.

*What is an Barcamp/unconference?*
More formal conferences have the usual people speaking every time; an
unconference is an opportunity to interact with new and interesting people.
There won't be a published list of speakers before the event, everyone
generates content on the day. That can include you! The schedule is decided
by the attendees and we'll have a voting system for that.

*What Is An Ogg?*
Ogg Vorbis <http://www.vorbis.com/> is a completely open, patent-free,
professional audio encoding and streaming technology with all the benefits
of Open Source. OggCamp is about technology, Open Source and Freedom, but
also about music, art, politics, community, creativity and much more. We
chose to use the term Ogg because for us it reflects all these things pretty

*Get Involved:
*Please add your own ideas for talks and activities to our public
wiki<http://ideas.oggcamp.org/>– help make the event what you want it
to be! It doesn't even have to be
about technology strictly, it could be anything. We have about 60 slots
available and all are welcome - ideas.oggcamp.org

You can also meet other attendees on IRC in *#oggcamp* on the Freenode
