June 24, 2009

Ok, folks…. here’s the information you need for Sunday’s event taking place at The Cross in Moseley. If you’ve registered, we’ll see you there – if not there’s more information below about how to follow us online.


2pm – 3pm Room available for set up only*

2.50pm Doors open. That way, you can bag a seat and grab a beer before we kick off.

3.30pm Moseley Barcamp commences. Intro, housekeeping and shizz. Broadcasting starts online and on Rhubarb Radio.

3.35pm Panels commence

Today’s panels are (running order may vary):

  • Neil Houston Community – Keeping the Peace
  • Chris Unitt The Little Blog That Could

  • Donato Esposito My 4am Experience
  • Nikki Pugh BARG Game
  • Nick Booth Help Me Investigate
  • Michael Grimes Mike’s a dark horse. We poked him with a spoon several times, but he’s playing his cards close to his chest. His talk’s a surprise. Shhh.
  • Andy Mabbett Let’s Play Tag: recent developments and emerging issues in the use of tagging for added semantic richness

5.30pm Food. Nom and natter.

6.00pm – 9.00pm (ish) Panels recommence

* People required from 1.30pm:

* Rhubarb Radio

* Daniel Davies

* Mr J. Bounds Esq. If possible.

* Panel hosts who need to set up their equipment prior to the proceedings. Ooh matron.

Attendees and Panellists – What to bring

  • A means of connecting to teh internetz (there is free wifi at the venue, but 3G dongles are always welcome) if you want to interact through live tweeting, blogging or other clever tricks you have up your dongle sleeve. Hashtag for the event is #mbcamp. Aggregated tweets will appear on our Cover it Live bloggy thing. We should have some spare power strips, but not many – so please bring your own if possible as we can’t guarantee we can supply you with the magic and wizardry of electricity.
  • Those who’ve agreed to bring equipment – please can you be there early so we can have everything set up by no later than 3.00pm. We fancy a beer before it starts!
  • Speakers – if you’ve said you’re running a panel, please bring whatever equipment you need. There’s a pre-installed projector and screen for speakers, and we’ve had the kind offer of additional projector/screen from Jon Bounds for Alex’s artsing.

Putting it out there and interacting if you’re not there

Hashtag is #mbcamp if you’re tweeting about us. Follow us on Twitter @moseleybarcamp. If you can’t join us in person, use Twitterfall to set up a custom search for the #mbcamp hashtag and get interacting or follow the Cover it Live bloggy thing. Want to just sit back and listen? Watch out for us publicising where to find the audio feed from Rhubarb Radio shortly – it’s the best way to keep up with the action as it happens if you’re not at the event.

Um, anything else?

Any questions? Email us or stick ‘em in the comments. Otherwise, we are very much looking forward to seeing you on Sunday.

    Remind me, please, of the recommended places to park. Thank you.

    Borrowed from the Moseley Festival website: Parking – there is a small pay and display car park on the Alcester Road, opposite The Cross and left after the junction with St Mary’s Row and Salisbury Road. Parking is limited in Moseley so please do try to use public transport.
