This event's predecessors, in 2011 2010 2009 (audio) 2008 and 2005 were low cost, one-day conferences about technologies that anyone can have a go at, from "Open Source"-style ways of working to repurposing everyday electronics hardware. Before that was NotCon 2004, an informal, low-cost, one-day conference on things that technologies were perhaps not intended to do.
