I was really, really disappointed that I couldn’t make it to BarCampSydney#5, even more so after reading Kate’s write up about the vibe of the day. She included a few photos and this is my favourite as it describes the BarCamp ethos so well, “open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants“. Of course I was supposed to be there to rally the post #publicsphere discussion about Government 2.0, but luckily Rob Manson (who as far as I know, I’ve never met in person?) stepped in to help herd the cats after I put in a call for help. But then that’s BarCamp, right?
