What were you doing at the time? Which page were you editing? Which
version of it? Did you do anything after seeing the error?
Sorry! Something went wrong. Please contact the Wiki administrator at openguides-london(a)openguides.org and quote the following error message:
DBD::Pg::db do failed: ERROR: duplicate key violates unique constraint "content_pkey" at /home/earle/downlode.org/perl/lib/CGI/Wiki/Store/Database.pm line 435. at /home/earle/downlode.org/perl/lib/CGI/Wiki.pm line 692

Ripped out of Fridays NTK:
LARRY "dear, *dear* Larry" LESSIG launches the UK versions of
the famed Creative Commons licenses, and - who knows? -
perhaps even some sort of practical applications for them, at
University College London's Edward Lewis Theatre this coming
Monday lunchtime (12noon-2pm Mon 2004-10-04, Windeyer
Building, 46 Cleveland Street, London W1, entrance free, but
please RSVP in advance to I.Brown(a)cs.ucl.ac.uk with "Creative
Commons UK" as the subject line). We don't know how long the
Professor is in the country, but we kind of suspect he might
also enjoy getting his teeth into next weekend's FIPR
COPYRIGHT IN EUROPE WORKSHOP ("starts Sat lunchtime and
finishes Sun lunchtime", 2004-10-09/10, Computer Laboratory,
University of Cambridge, 15 JJ Thomson Avenue, Cambridge CB3,
looks free but email them to check), where the Foundation for
Information Policy Research will be considering responses to
"the EU legal framework in the field of copyright and related
rights", possibly along the lines of why increased legal
protection of "intellectual property" might actually be bad,
not good, like some people seem to think.
