I don't know if Brighton has a Linux User Group?
But they might be
interested (and also may have suggestions for venues and other helpful
The only really important thing in a venue is the WiFi ;)
As to advertising; post on the Bot Owners Noticeboard.
What Brighton does have: BarCamp!
I'll be there and will be happy to talk Wikimedia stuff to anyone who
will listen: might be an idea to try and get people from the BarCamp
community to come along, as well as the many open source communities
* BrightonPy - http://brightonpy.org/
* Async - http://asyncjs.com/
* Brighton Ruby User Group - http://www.brighton-ruby.org.uk/
* Brighton Girl Geek Dinners
* UX Brighton (because Wikimedia could do with some UX people to tell
us how to suck less)
I've tweeted about it as I know a lot of designers and developer types
in Brighton who might be interested - I'm presuming we are going to
let designers turn up and give us their wisdom? ;-)
I'll contact The Skiff, a coworking place in Brighton that a friend of
mine runs to see if he's interested in letting us use some space
there. They have hosted BarCamp for 100+ people, but have nice small
rooms and office space for hacking.
