No not for crusing the city and spying on us - well not yet anyway but as a way of honing engineering skills and inspiring other people to build their own projects.

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.
