I’m still in serious sleep debt after a great weekend at Kiwi Foo Camp (a.k.a. Baa Camp) in Warkworth.
This was my second Foo Camp (my first was this same event last year). Once again it was a surprising mix of people and ideas. Between the wine, warewolf, cricket, banjo, and guitar hero there was just enough time for some excellent presentations and sessions – the ones I attended covered everything from pitching tech stories to media, to electric cars, to shareware, to teaching kids to program … and lots in between.
We even managed to stop en route for an indoor ski, which was bizarre but a lot of fun (imagine a giant fridge sitting on the side of a hill on the outskirts of Auckland and you start to get the idea).
So, in place of more words here are some photos from Flickr and some links:
On Saturday morning Kim Hill interviewed some of the attendees (you can listen to the podcast if you missed it) …
Well, okay, not [ALWAYS]14] …
At the same time these guys were having a lot of fun with fire (and taking some great timelapse photos)…
But, don’t just take my word for it. Here is what some other attendees thought:
Meanwhile, the Kiwi Foo Camp wikipedia post needs to be updated if anybody has some time to spare.
