Camping without the tents: UK GovCamp 2012
I spent Friday and Saturday in London at UK GovCamp 2012, or #UKGC12 as it's known on Twitter. It was an "unconference" with no prepared agenda. If you aren't familiar with unconferences, Steph Gray gives a good description in his November 2011 article in The Guardian. It amazes me that so many people are willing to give up large chunks of their weekend for this kind of thing, sometimes travelling all the way from the other end of the country.
