FOWA: ORG-anic chemistry

ORG's Glyn Wintle lures FOWA attendees with a box of chocs
Good to see UK digital liberty champions the Open Rights Group (ORG) in a prominient position at this week’s FOWA Expo – near the door of the main auditorium – and to meet (at last) some of the folks behind the scenes (hi Becky and Glyn!). As one of the original few hundred people to pledge a fiver a month to set the group up, I’ve been really pleased at the profile ORG has built up in its first two years. Chatting with ORG’s Glyn Wintle at FOWA (who did a great job of luring people to the stand with a box of Maltesers – see pic), it seems the group’s activities at this year’s political conferences have been going well, too, with the focus firmly on the problems of current e-voting systems. Apparently, Tory mayoral candidate Boris Johnson was particularly wowed by ORG’s pitch – but maybe he’s just looking to hack the systems slated for use in next year’s London mayoral elections. 🙂
