Brock Craft talks about tinker.it, the design studio that build interactive products, spaces and events that bridge the physical and the digital. Tinker.it are heavily involved with the Arduino scene in the UK.
Gervase Markham from Mozilla will talk about Mozilla Drumbeat, the Mozilla project's effort to convince the world to care about the openness of the web. As an encore, in honour of the theme of the conference, he'll be taking you through the first serious program he ever wrote - written in BBC BASIC.

Showing of "The Story of LugRadio" on the main stage
Des Burley, an actual proper technology lawyer, speaks on real issues of UK technology law and takes your questions.
Andy Robinson, aka blackadder, one of the principal movers behind OpenStreetMap, talks about the open mapping project and its progress.
The one, the only, the legendary Bruno Bord, LugRadio (deputy) Community Hero and famously French, delivers another of his LRL talks.
The last LugRadio Live and Unleashed. Ever.
Tom Edwards on supercomputers, how they're made and how Linux and free software makes a significant contribution to their operation. The talk covers the kind of problems that they are used to solve (briefly) and what tools are already out there to do parallel programming at home (OpenMP and GOMP in GCC and message passing libraries like OpenMPI and MPICH).
Tom is a PhD student at Edinburgh studying how to make Nuclear Fusion simulations work better on our 22000 processor system, HECToR (www.hector.ac.uk) and he's worked at the Met Office on their weather model.
Martin Meredith gives you a whirlwind tour of the hackers mind, and teaches you how to hack things around you in every-day life
possibly a Wii championship in the upstairs room :-)
Matthew Paul Thomas, aka mpt, draws on his ten years of experience in complaining, both successfully and unsuccessfully, about the usability of Free Software projects.
Craig Rothwell, official UK GP2X distributor, talks about OpenPandora, the open source handheld gaming console.
Steve Lamb talks about how technology can help companies innovate out of the recession.
Fab from Linux Outlaws talks about Linux adoption in schools.
Tony Whitmore of the Ubuntu UK Podcast talks about producing a podcast, both the techie stuff and the things the team have learnt since starting their show in 2008. Come to this talk if you have ever wondered how to put together a podcast using Free Software, or if you've ever wondered why anybody would want to.
A look at the security issues that can affect a web application with
some practical tips on how to avoid them.
Re-LoaD, organiser of BrumCon, the Birmingham hacker convention, talks about how it all happened.
The general pitfalls of implementing content-caching "company wide" versus advantages of making your single app support it, and common tags and ways to [ab]use them, etc...
"What would you get if you crossed a camel and a snake? Cake, of course!"
In this talk JJ will compare and contrast Perl and Python solutions to the same problem, looking at coding style and readability to see what Perl can learn from "the dark side".
