1 I'm helping to arrange this small conference in Gothenburg so if anybody wants to come and send a talk proposal you are more than welcome.
3 Call for participation -- FSCONS 2014, 31 Oct-2 Nov
5 The Free Society Conference and Nordic Summit (FSCONS) is a meeting
6 place for social change, focused on the intersection between technology,
7 culture and society. FSCONS is organised according to the principles
8 laid out in our Manifesto[1], a living document accepted by the
9 society's members at the yearly meeting.
11 The conference brings together people from a wide range of
12 fields, and merges the technical with the social, seeking both to
13 activate and challenge. Open discussion and brainstorming are as
14 important as the talks given during the conference.
16 Invitation

19 or Free Society generally, as well as those which are at the
