A Consuming Experience

Blogging, internet, software, mobile, telecomms, gadgets, technology, media and digital rights from the perspective of a consumer / user, including reviews, rants and random thoughts. Aimed at intelligent non-geeks, who are all too often unnecessarily disenfranchised by excessive use of tech jargon, this blog aims to be informative and practical without being patronising. With guides, tutorials, tips - and the occasional ever so slightly naughty observation.

To quote from Christian Ahlert's email to the CC-UK mailing list:
I know all of you like to discuss and think about web 2.0, music and film sharing/remixing, p2p, or Creative Commons. San Francisco has the Creative Commons Salon, other cities regular BarCamps, or so called new media gatherings. But there is no regular meeting space for this London. It should be a good opportunity to meet new and interesting people, discuss creative ideas and have some fun.

So we - Creative Commons England&Wales, Openbusiness.cc, OpenMute and The People Speak - are organizing the first MiniBar on Friday the 17th in the Truman Brewery. There will be some free beer (as in Free).

More info at: http://barcamp.org/minibar
RSVP: info@openbusiness.cc

Plus for this first meeting:

John Buckman of Magnatune.com and Bookmooch.com will say a couple of words about music sharing, p2p philosophy and Creative Commons.

We will also be trialling our very Situated Social Tagging system! Think people, not URLs, and sticky-backed tags! More on the night...

I've signed up, myself, and will hopefully be there. Spread the word!
