Technology and the web are great, but wouldn’t it be great if we could have a more tangible way of connecting the data and the information we create…?

Ben O’Steen, formally a software developer at Oxford University and now working as a freelance developer has an interest in “Making the Physical from the Digital – How I learnt to forget about pdf and love postscript and why it rocks for making book printouts for DIY book binding”

Update: Michael Thomson – A ‘Bristol based technology enthusiast’ will be talking about and demoing his Makerbot Cupcake

Speaker TBC – RepRap is a free desktop 3D printer capable of printing plastic objects. Since many parts of RepRap are made from plastic and RepRap can print those parts, RepRap can be considered a self-replicating machine – one that anyone can build given time and materials. It also means that – if you’ve got a RepRap – you can print lots of useful stuff, and you can print another RepRap for a friend…

Julian Cheal: Some fun things to do with RFID. We use RFID readers most days, either to get access to our place of work, or to borrow a book or dvd from our local library. Now wouldn’t it be good if we could make RFID just a little bit more fun?
