SciBarCamp day 2
A fantastic ending to a highly successful first camp. We plan more
The entire weekend went off with very few hitches--the worst being a bit of schedule crunch on Saturday, but nothing that actually stopped people from presenting. I took a few more photos, but at this point there's a lot of other people who had much better cameras than my phone, and who were much better photographers; so I'll just point you to the Flickr page where many of the pix have been collected.
If you'd like more detail about what we discussed, you can drop by the SciBarCamp website and look at the program schedules. We've encouraged people to blog about the event and to tag their entries with SciBarCamp, so you can track down a lot more about it at sites like technorati.
I'd like to thank everybody who had faith in us and came. I'd also especially like to thank the other organizers, Jen Dodd, Michael Nielsen, Eva Amsen, Lee Smolin, and Jamie McQuay. Jen and Michael were the instigators and they, Eva and Jamie did most of the work; I was just along for the ride, really. Jen and Jamie in particular spent their own money to make it all happen, and deserve special mention for it.
We've talked about whether we're doing another SciBarCamp; there's no reason why not, it's a scheduling issue more than anything. I hope the meme spreads, and that it becomes a regular in Toronto and beyond.
