Two Open Knowledge events in Cape Town

On the Open Knowledge Foundation blog, Rufus Pollock and François Gray write:

There are two exciting open data and open knowledge events in Cape Town South Africa taking place in the next week (in which we’ll both be participating).

First up, this Saturday and Sunday, 19-20 November 2011, we’ll be holding an Open Data and Science hackfest at the African Institute of Mathematical Sciences.

Then next Tuesday, from 6:30pm-8:30pm an Open Knowledge Meetup (#OpenMeetupCT) is being organized for those interested in Open Data, Open Content and Open Source.

We are going to attend both – inspiration and follow-up for Science Hack Day Cape Town? The community is building up!…
