organized tightly from beginning to end, leaving out the intro round of the participants as well as not discussing the sessions took out part of the barcamp essence. the same goes for the general call to blog about it. let´s have that next time. participating day one of barcamp, those were the highlights:
freewave presented their wlan concept. the session was on the line between marketing pitch and sharing their motivations and experiences. their engagement to protect users against the ever growing data collection lust of public authorities impressed. that smart phones already account for 40% of traffic on their hotspots and they expect 50% throughout the year as well.
the cloud made it possible for dctp.tv to bring 21 years of tv shows online. at 10% of the costs of a conventional (=buy hardware) solution. fabian topfstedt held a interesting session on this project.
the jolicloud session of alexander kirk showed a visionary approach on netbook os. jolicloud= nebook oriented os=classic os+socially enriched. e.g. one sees which apps one´s netbook peers installed and proposes to do the same. looks promising.
more pictures of the barcamp can be found at the start.upICT flickr stream. finally the top quotes of the barcamp:
"....die usa ist ein problem..."/ „..the u.s. are a problem...“. totally taken out of context. and finally "mein rechner hat keine windows taste!" / „my computer does not have a windows key!“. cu at the next barcamp!
