[Linux-aus] Sebastian Rahtz - UK Open Source policy maker - in Australia!
I've the pleasure of announcing that Sebastian Rahtz will be in Australia
and available for a public talk on the 25th May (he is only in town for two
days). Sebastian has a lot of interesting foo to talk about, and was
involved in UK Open Source policy making for Government.
I was contacted about this just a few days ago, and thought it would be a
great talk for SLUG if it was only a couple of days later. As it is, would
SLUG like to host the talk at UTS on the evening of the 25th? If anyone
would be able to host this please let me know. A city location is preferable
so more people can attend easily.
Sebastians bio is below.

I'd be delighted to give as many talks to anyone as I can fit in.
Can I leave it with you and Ray to sort out a time and place?
I am especially delighted to meet someone whose email
address is "greebo". Esme Weatherwax's cat, right?
This is me below. Is that OK?
