Show Notes

00:40 | WELCOME and INTRO: About OGG Camp 11 OGG Camp is a joint venture organised by the Ubuntu UK podcast and Linux outlaws teams, taking over from the sadly departed LUG Radio live. In this, it's third year, OGG Camp came South to the Farnham Maltings venue. These are some of the highlights of what happened on Saturday, Day One. None of the names have been changed to protect the guilty...  

02:19 | Arrival at OGG Camp 11  

02:49 | Opening, greetings, notes on the Unconference: the Ubuntu UK Podcast (UUPC) and Linux Outlaws teams, with acknowledgements to Jon Spriggs for the Campfire Manager conference scheduler.

09:12 | Introducing Simon Phipps, who presented the opening session of the unconference to a packed main hall, on Software Freedom.

A computer industry veteran, Simon Phipps came on with an actual box of hats which he proceeded the change at speed, reminding me of Tommy Cooper in his heyday. Simon has come up through hands-on roles as field engineer, programmer and systems analyst, run a software publishing company, worked with OSI standards in the eighties, on the first commercial collaborative conferencing software in the nineties, and helped introduce both Java and XML at IBM.

A founding Director of the Open Mobile Alliance, Simon is Chief Strategy Officer at independent software company ForgeRock and Director of the Open Source Initiative. Find his essays at
