Who's Helping Out: Add your name to the list if you can help out - the more the better! Contact Dave (the guy at the top of the list) by email with ideas or sponsorship

We need help fulfilling the following vision:

Gather about 100 people who have a shared interest in open-content and free-digital-culture in SA.

  • A cocktail party - snacks and vino
  • Some live music
  • Some talks (contact Dave@huddlemind.com if you'd like to book a 5min speaking slot)

WikiMania 2008 Bid

There will be a short meeting beforehand (starting just before 5pm?) to discuss the Cape Town WikiMania 2008 bid - please come along if you're interested.


We have four musicians playing on the night:

Anybody who can help out with sound equipment, let us know. We need:

  • More microphones. You can never have too many mikes.
  • Leads. Lots of leads. We're always running out of leads.
  • A sub woofer with an amp to drive it. (>= 1kw)
  • An active crossover would go nicely with the sub but not essential.
  • DI boxes.

What's needed?

  • Some people
  • Any sponsorship that will add value to the experience

It's free to attend, but there are Party Rules

Who's coming?

Limited to 100 people - if you can't make it, please remove your name from the list so others can sign up...
