UKGovCamp 2010: it was epic

Yesterday’s UKGovCamp was predictably excellent. It was a genuine pleasure to spend the day with such an amazing group of inspirational people and hear about the great things they’re doing to make UK Government a little bit better


UKGovCamp is an informal ‘unconference’ event, for people working in public sector tech and comms. This was the third annual barcamp, and like the previous two took place at Google’s London HQ (which we were under strict instructions NOT to photograph). 

There were lots of great sessions, and in each timeslot there were at least two I wanted to go to. I was glad, then, that there were so many active social reporters there and I was able to get a feel for what was going on in all the other sessions via the Twitter stream and the Tumblr. I especially like Paul Clarke’s Flickr stream, even if he did get a picture of me pulling a really unattractive face.

I took notes in most of the sessions, and I tweeted *a lot*, so I’m going to write those up into blogs on each of the sessions individually.

The Epic Visionary raffle was won by the lovely people at Learning Pool, and raised a very respectable £303 for the DEC Appeal for Haiti.

Massive thanks to Dave Briggs for organising the event, Huddle, Opportunity Links, Learning Pool, IDeA, Polywonk, Timetric, the Dextrous Web for sponsoring, and Hadley Beeman for sorting out the post-camp drinks.
