It’s been a mad few weeks, so lets try and recap.
Blackpool finally has a geek social event.
I’ve wanted to setup an event like this for a while, but I’ve not had the time. So it came as quite a shock when the plan fell into place without any major hitches.
The first meeting was on the 25th July at Gillespies pub, and you can read more here
I’ve also been in a meeting with Fiona Dransfield from Blackpool Council, about the councils involvement with social / creative and technical events in Blackpool (such as Barcamp Blackpool Blackpool Social Media Surgery, and Geekup)
Duncan and Cath held the second Blackpool Social Media Surgery, I came along to help as a surgeon.
Myself and @surlydev showed Mike from Blackpool Advocacy (@blackpooladvo) how to use Twitter effectively for their organisation. Including how to use Dropbox to share private and public files with employees and service users.
We’ve created an Android app a banner, played with Arduinos, you name it, this group has done it!
It’s only two weeks to Oggcamp
I’ll be there in my capacity as Crew Manager, spending some lovely time down south, and chatting with some old friends.
