It was great to read through Roland's retrospective of BarCamp's we've been involved in. I think he missed BarCamp SF at the Microsoft offices...I caught part of that after a late flight in.
BarCamp Amsterdam has to be one of my favourites. Chris Pirillo came in with a big donation that helped (European) beer-fueled hacking, the Mediamatic people and offices were fantastic, and lots of my European friends were there that I don't get to see very often. Oh, right, and I got to cook for 50+ people over an open flame indoors :P
I love unconferences. I wasn't involved in organizing this year's BarCamp Vancouver, so thanks to the many organizers and helpers. Here's what Jordan Behan has to say:
After last year’s event, I was so amazed at the things I learned and the people I met that I wanted to help out anywhere I could this year. So I joined (invited myself onto) the organizing committee, and thus I feel it is my duty to share a bit of Barcamp How-to.
That's exactly the spirit we want to see. See you tonight...
