Open Everything Cape Town this Friday!

August 18, 2008 § 2 Comments

I met with The Amazing Philipp Schmidt over the weekend to prep for Open Everything Cape Town. The event is happening this Friday at Bird’s Boutique Cafe. It’s an amazing venue. High ceilings and tons of light. And scrumptious homemade everything.


We spent about an hour going over the agenda. Philipp and Helen (also co-organizing) have done amazing job getting people to present at the event. The speedgeek list looks like this:

Couchsurfing by Mandy Messina
27 Dinners by Dave Duarte
UWC’s Rip. Mix. Learn. by someone from UWC
Mail and Guardian Thought Leader by Matthew Buckland
Siyavula / FHSST by Sarah Blyth
QuirkE Marketing by Rob Stokes
Dabba / Village Telco by Steve Song
Ultimate Holiday Planner by Terence Lapidus
Missing Link by Rich Mulholland
Creative R&D by Steve Kromberg

Also, we’re likely to have an insider view on how the South African Government’s open source adoption project happened … and how it’s rolling out. I promise to podcast if it happens.

If you’re in Cape Town and interested, make sure to sign up on the wiki ASAP. It feels like there is alot of buzz around this event. And space is limited.

  • Have lots of fun, it looks like you have some brilliant things that will be discussed. Whohooo. Can we listen virtually?

  • Mark Surman says:

    Virtually listen in: yes, after the fact. With 40+ people in a tiny cafe rejigging the agenda constantly, I am not sure a live speakerphone would help. 🙂 Videos of all the speedgeeks plus poscasts of the two main talks are planned.

What’s this?
