Re-Connective Collective: Upcoming Events for Collectives the Week of June 1st 2009

Posted Monday, June 1st, 2009 at 6:00 pm by stephen in Cultural Bees. More in 10014

I recently received notice of a number of interesting events coming up this week that I wanted to share with you all.  They are all free or fairly affordable ($15 is the most expensive).   I thought they might be of interest to people wanting to be progressive and/or expand their horizons with free and open events based on community building, sustainability and innovation in open-source software that you should enjoy.  If you have any tips of upcoming events send them to [email protected].

First off check out this link for information of the free Ignite IV Film Festival celebrating Internet Week and some related talks that seems to be a  preview of content for a Web 2.0 Conference coming in the Fall (November 16 to 19th). This event was put on by Radar O’Reilly, check out this link for other coming events put on by this group.

This event is tonight (June 1st, 2009) running from 7 PM to 11 PM with the folowing breakout of schedule:
