Open Visualization Workshop this Saturday in London (UK). Not sure what time, but it will be clarified, I am sure.

Workshop voted on at our Doodle page  is this coming Saturday 24th
May. The event will be an informal, hands-on workshop focusing on open

Open Visualisation Workshop
Visual representation is a time-tested way of making large, complex bodies of information manageable – whether in the form of maps, timelines, graphs, or charts. Emerging digital technologies have revolutionised what is possible in this domain.
This is an informal, hands-on workshop for those who work with, or are interested in, open-source visualisation technologies, whether based on the web or on the desktop, whether for data or other kinds of knowledge.
