Open Rights Group

The Open Rights Group, which I wrote about a while back has broken its target of 1000 people pledging to donate £5 a month to fund it. Apparently they're going to have an inaugural meeting/launch party in London tonight.

In other news, I accidentally volunteered to be the secretary for Orbital 2008, which is a bid to run Eastercon in 2008. I'm not on the committee, but I'll be the guy who keeps track of all the deadlines and nags the committee members when they lag behind, as well as taking minutes at meetings, recording information, etc.
