What you didn't come along! Well you really missed out on a cool weekend of open source technology and open source thinking - if you don't know what that is then you should have come along for sure. But at least you can catch Stephen Fry talking to the huge crowd who were there.
Last October Liverpool Acoustic held it's first Music Afternoon at Mathew Street’s View Two Gallery. And they had so much fun that they’ve decided to do it all over again!
This coming Saturday 9th June 2012 Liverpool Acoustic will be hosting a relaxed event featuring mainly open mic with a couple of booked guests thrown in for good measure. It’s all taking place in the View Two Gallery’s top floor performance space from 1.00pm to 4.00pm and is free to attend.
Musicians wanting to take part in the open mic can just turn up on the day – the spaces will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. The gallery opens at 12.00pm and closes at 5.00pm.

We finally see it - a year in the making but now Hack for Culture has a name it can't be sued over. It is set to set the world of arts data alight by bringing the glorious arts & cultural organisations of Liverpool together with Merseyside's Digital and Creative industries to explore and experiment with a wide variety of hidden cultural data sets.
"A data set (or dataset) is a collection of data, usually presented in tabular form. Each column represents a particular variable. Each row corresponds to a given member of the data set in question. It lists values for each of the variables, such as height and weight of an object. Each value is known as a datum. The data set may comprise data for one or more members, corresponding to the number of rows." Wikipedia - so probably wrong.
