"your average geek conference but with a bit of rock concert flavor"
The very first LugRadio Live USA in 2008 (http://lugradio.org/live/USA2008/start) is taking place at The Metreon in San Francisco on Saturday, April 12 and Sunday, April 13, 2008. Magnatune founder and CEO, John Buckman will give a talk on the main stage on Sunday.
In 2007 LugRadio Live premiered the conference in the UK and it was so successful that the event founders decided to export the community-based conference to “glorious” San Francisco. LugRadio Live has a strong reputation for providing a range of topics about free software, open source, digital rights, technology and more, a compelling list of speakers, exhibitors and birds of a feather sessions, and wrapping it all in a unique, fun, loose, social and inclusive event, which is often described as combining the atmosphere of a rock concert and a computer conference.
John will be speaking on Sunday, April 13 on the Main Stage from 11:00 am to 12:00 p.m. He’ll be discussing Creative Commons, Open-Source-Institute requirements for “open source” and what the future looks like in a post-DRM music world.
The event will present around 30 speakers, over 20
exhibitors, an eclectic range of BOF sessions, and plenty of additional
sessions such as our debate discussion panel, a showcase of five minute talks,
tech demos, and many opportunities for socializing.
