Open Tech 2005 is an informal, low cost, one-day conference about technologies that anyone can have a go at, from "Open Source"-style ways of working to repurposing everyday electronics hardware.

The line-up currently features:
* Ted Nelson, inventor of hypertext, on where the web went wrong
* The official launch of the developer network, opening up BBC content for you to play with

More speakers will be confirmed - but, as the title implies, we're very much "Open" to suggestions. If you're reverse-engineering proprietary protocols, making useful information available in a way people couldn't get at before, pioneering unexpected methods of knowledge sharing - or (equally likely) doing something so cool we haven't even thought of it yet, then please get in touch via the submissions form.
