Fancy camping? Welcome to InterTent'08 ...

I'm going camping at Lee Valley Campsite on the 16th / 17th August. So based upon some tweets, I thought I'd start a completely disorganised unconference on Emerging Technologies (for example, Green IT, Innovation, Web 2.0, Enterprise 2.0, Utility Computing, Portability, Fabrication, Gov 2.0, Cybernetics, Open Source, Social Media and anything else that is interesting)

Bring your own tent, laptops, food, drink, coffee and whatever else you need. If you need power, you're going to have to work out how to bring some of that too (solar, wind, pedal etc). You'll need to book a pitch, which will cost you £6.80 per person.

As for the name of this unconference, blame James Governor. If you fancy organising this and putting up a facebook, myspace or some other group etc, please don't ask - just do it.

If you're planning to come along then please add yourself to the Wiki.

At the end of the day, I'm just going camping. If it turns out that we end up with an impromptu conference all about tomorrow's technology, well then that's £750 quid saved.

I have penciled it in just sorting out finer details. Have you booked a pitch?

Not yet, I talked to the guy at the site, he says there is plenty of room and something can be sorted out if we have a large group. Thought I'd leave it a week and see how many people are interested and then book up some spaces.

That sounds like a great laugh, hope I can make it

Hmmm, if I happen to be in the UK around then would be great ... there's about a 20% chance of that at the moment.

Too bad, I will be at in Copenhagen after YAPC::Europe that weekend.

Damn, that's a shame Leon. It's been a long time - I hope all is well.

Hi,

I'm really interested in attending, but as I'm not London-based and have wife 'n' kids, it may be tricky.

Anyhoo, I've added the event to upcoming:
