Defnet's Digital News from in and around Liveprool
An exclusive evening is planned with 'Everyplay Evangelist' Oscar Clark, hosted by The Studio School, Liverpool and ACME
If you're a gamer or a creative and digital business interested in how your business can harness the power of games to engage communities and generate revenue, this is a session for you.
Oscar has a passion for online entertainment and community and has spent the last 12 years on the bleeding edge of this technology.
Members of local voluntary and community sector groups are invited to this free social media advice session.
You'll get practical hands-on advice for putting social technology into action for your cause, to help you reach a wider audience and promote the good work you do.
It's been away awhile but it is now back with us and we are hoping for a great weekend discovering all sorts of digital quackery. Yes, people will be constructing their own internet and taking selfies while on the loo, so suffice to say yes it is the AND Festival. The same people who brought you David Shrigley giving people tattoos in Untility's window are entertaining us over the wekend with a pile of other mad performamces, cinema and digital interventions. (Yes I said interventions)
There are loads of really cool events and workshops so do check out the AND website for those.

You do, well I shall see you there - If you don't then why ever not?
Don't you know that OggCamp is the largest Open Source and Free Culture event in the UK and is now entering it's 5th year?
That it has gradually grown to 400+ attendees and had talks from such luminaries as Stephen Fry?
As free and open source culture events go they don't get much better than this - in fact I'm not sure if there are any other free and open source culture events. This really does beat the AND Festival. hands down.
