I have been playing with photoshop to try and get some cool badges for supporters to use in promotion of their involvement of be2camp. If anyone can improve on the logos, esp the size and format, or indeed suggest other 'badges' please feel free to do so. What is important is we keep the be2camp brand intact. The link to add to the images is www.be2camp.com Enjoy…

At the Think '08 event earlier this year, I talked to people on the UrbanBuzz

Unsure what to expect at a Barcamp or 'unconference' event? So was Pam Broviak, but she found it an enlightening experience - read about it here: Barcamp, social media, and pizza
As fellow event 'unorganiser' Martin Brown says, maybe this is The future of conferences?

You will see the word free
numerous times across this site. It would be good clarify and to have an understanding of how we (the unorganisers) see the meaning of 'free'
Using the expression from open source, be2camp will be free as in free speech, not free as in free beer
In other words, the be2camp attendance 'fee' is your contribution

I had a useful hour or so at the Building Centre this afternoon. Met up again with Andrew Schoones (a long-time friend, now head of the Building Centre Trust), plus his event organiser Meghan Fernandes, and techie bloke Milos.
The ground floor entrance area has a huge model of central London, plus a bookship and a small cafe. Main tenant here is New London Architecture
. The space has been used for Puecha Kucha events in the past,… Continue
