1000 mile cycle ride for ISKO UK speaker

Andy Powell, one of our speakers at the forthcoming one-day conference Linked Data: The Future of Knowledge Organization on the Web is cycling the length of Britain to raise money for two charities, St Peter's Hospice in Bristol and Book Aid International.

Andy was prompted to undertake the ride after his close colleague at UKOLN in Bath, Rachel Heery, died in July. Rachel, Deputy Director at UKOLN, was well known in the metadata community and contributed immensely not only to UKOLN, but to kindred organizations such as JISC. Tributes to Rachel from her UKOLN and JISC colleagues have been posted on the web.
