Be2camp is for people interested in openly sharing how the latest web and mobile applications and web design techniques (Web 2.0 - blogs, Twitter, Wikis, etc) can help build a better, more sustainable built environment - planning, design, construction, occupation and management of buildings, services, landscape, etc.
Events - In October 2008, the first 'unconference' focused on Web 2.0 and the built environment, was held in London. Since then, independently and with partners, we've held over 40 further events (sharing literally 100s of presentations) - in Birmingham, Colchester, Dundee, Leeds, Liverpool, London and Manchester - and in 2011 we held the first Be2Awards.
Today's ThinkBIM Simulcast is, technology permitting, now linking speakers in three places: London, Leeds and Dubai.
As previously announced, the CKE-organised event will have audiences at Leeds Metropolitan University and University of Westminster, while one speaker will be contributing from Dubai. Google Hangout is being used to link the three venues, and to share the event online from 6pm GMT, 29 January 2014.

The location perfectly reflects the plan's mood, making up a global network of people, places, and programs that inspire, connect and catalyse impact. ... The UK capital is the first step in the ambitious program [sic] to create a wired network of clusters developing the platform around the globe. London still represents the hub of creativity and the connective core between Europe and the rest of the world. Clerkenwell…Continue
