As one of the four large gents I am pleased to announce LUGRadio Live 2007 will happen on the 7th and 8th July 2007 at The Lighthouse in Wolverhampton, England.

LUGRadio Live is an awesomely cool, fun, social and interesting two-day conference based around Open Source, free software and related subjects. The show packs in interesting speakers, exhibitors, BOF sessions, debates and a live recording of LUGRadio in front of an audience.

This is the third year we are running LUGRadio Live and the last two years have proved successful with a great a line up of speakers, exhibitors and an excellent bunch of people coming along to make it what it is. This year promises to be bigger, better, and the venue is a fantastic location for the event.

More details about the event, hotels and all that jazz is coming – the website is being set up as we speak, but this blog entry is here to encourage one thing, and one thing only – SPEAKERS!
