#MozFest Cometh

This time next week I should be in London at Ravensbourne art college for my fourth MozFest experience. *Finally* Martin Hawksey is attending and he’s gone all out and is even running a session. The lovely people of ALT will be there talking about CMALT. I’m also going to take the plunge this year and run a short session to introduce the wonderful world of Wikipedia editing and Alice White from the Wellcome Library has kindly volunteered to co-facilitate. I’ve had so much from the sessions I’ve attended in the past that it’s really long overdue to give something back.

Last year I didn’t write a lot about MozFest because I got mugged and had my phone stolen and lost all my notes and photos. It was a bit of a downer. This year I’m not only going to try write something for myself, but also hopefully something for the ALT blog because frankly more learning technologists should be at this event. It is hands-down the best fun, if you’re into hacking, making, art, data, ethics, privacy, the open web, everything open that you can do on the open web, social justice and all the other things that are too numerous to list.

Look at the speaker line-up alone for goodness sake.

Then there’s the scheduled sessions. How do I even choose and this is about 1/5 of what’s in the 10:00 – 11:00 slot.


Okay. I’m over-stimulated already. Going to have a cup of tea and sit down.
