Time: Registration 9:00AM – 10:00AM, Main Event 10:00AM – 5:00PM; Social Mixer immedately following the main event

Open Everything (global site: openeverything.net) is a collection of events scattered all over the world, organized by ordinary people just like you. The purpose of the event is to explore and discuss ‘open’. The interpretation of the idea is in the hands of attendees, and each event differs from the next.

Let there be no confusion, Open Everything is not a tech conference. There is much more to ‘open’ than technology, part of the goal of the event is to bring the less known aspects of ‘open’ to the attention of the general public.

At Open Everything Hong Kong 2008 there will be two invited guest speakers and four open sessions left in the hands of attendees. Feel free to come prepared with a topic to share, discuss, or present. Also feel free to act spontaneously and lead a group discussion with no preparation at all. The magic of the event is that it is open and we’re all free to contribute as we desire.

The event is free and open to the public, we do kindly ask that you register so we can give you a fancy name badge and maybe even a T-shirt. We’d also like to know how many people to expect so that we’re prepared.

Sister events will be held in Berlin, Germany and Madison, WI, USA on the same day. We’re expecting to have some sort of video link to hand over between timezones.

  1. I’m quite interested in the idea.

    I’m just wondering if we can come one hour during lunch time or if we have to attend the all event.

    Thanks for your answer.

    Best Regards.

    Elodie.
