Hope this might be of interest to some of you.  I'm not sure how feasible it'll 
be to stream and/or video the event, but we're currently looking into it.

The first Mashed Library UK event, organised by Owen Stephens, was held at 
Birkbeck College in November 2008 with the aim of "bringing together interested 
people and doing interesting stuff with libraries and technology".  Further 
details about the 2008 event are available here: http://mashedlibrary.ning.com

The University of Huddersfield is proud to be hosting the second event, dubbed 
"Mash Oop North!", which is being sponsored by Talis.  The event will take 
place in Huddersfield on July 7th.

Mashed Library is aimed at librarians, library developers and library techies 
who want to learn more about Web 2.0 & 3.0, Library 2.0, creating mash-ups and 
generally doing interesting/cool/useful things with data.  In particular, we 
expect the event to generate the following outcomes for all attendees:

1) Awareness of the latest developments in library technology
2) Application of Web 2.0 technologies in a library context
3) Community building and networking
4) Learn new skills and develop existing ones

The event is primarily an "unconference", so attendees will be encouraged to 
participate throughout the day.  Further information is available on the event 
blog: http://mashlib09.wordpress.com

A small token registration fee of £15 is the only charge for the event.  Places 
are limited to around 60 delegates, so we would advise booking early to avoid
