Warm regards,

After the success of Open Everything London a few weeks ago, we're now
involved in putting on Open Everything Berlin, which will take place
in early December. It will be a great opportunity to meet people
interested in open knowledge, open source software, and so on. Details
are as follows:

 * When: Saturday 6th December 2008
 * Where: newthinking store, Tucholskystr. 48, Berlin-Mitte (map)
 * Programme: http://openeverything.mixxt.de/networks/wiki/index.Programm
 * Registration: Attendance is free! Sign up on the mixxt network!

The event will start with a handover from Open Everything Hong Kong
and finish with a handover to Open Everything Madison - both of which
will also take place on the 6th.

In addition to talks, presentations and discussions, the event will
feature the launch of Ivo Gormley's Us Now, a Creative Commons
licensed documentary about new forms of collaboration produced in
association with the RSA:

 Everywhere you look, groups of people are using the internet to
come together to share with one another, work together, or take some
kind of public action" Clay Shirky. For the first time in history, we
have the tools that truly amplify group effort and can change
politics, business and society. Us Now follows the stories of the
people that are redefining what is an institution; it plots the fate
of a football club owned and run by its fans, a bank in which everyone
is the manager, a global network whose members share their homes with
strangers and asks politicians and thinkers such as George Osbourne,
Ed Milliband, Don Tapscott and Clay Shirky; what all this means for

There's also a (relatively) new ok-berlin mailing list. If you're
around Berlin and you'd like to stay in touch with other people
interested in open stuff - we hope you'll join!
