 Call for participation -- FSCONS 2014, 31 Oct-2 Nov
 
 The Free Society Conference and Nordic Summit (FSCONS) is a meeting
 place for social change, focused on the intersection between technology,
 culture and society.
 The conference brings together people from a wide range of
 fields, and merges the technical with the social, seeking both to
 activate and challenge. Open discussion and brainstorming are as
 important as the talks given during the conference.
 SUGGESTION: The principles of FSCONS are stated in our manifesto.
 SUGGESTION: FSCONS is organised according to the principles laid out

 as its guiding values.
