On BarCamp

BarCamp Mumbai was good.I certainly enjoyed presenting my work in progress.I expected a more mixed crowd; the participants were largely aspiring tech-entrepreneurs.

I love geekoid and geek-culture.There were free pizzas and coffee and my presentation got hijacked twice by their nitpicking impatience.

Consider this:

‘ I thought this was about gaming .’Contrasomething’ ; Now thats a game that gives you an experience’.

‘Can you tell me a little about it?’

‘Well, you just get on the game and shoot everyone in sight.’

‘Okay.’

Bar Camp is an ad hoc gathering of people, who are technologically inclined to learn and share their work in an open environment.In the list of presentations was stuff like social media and tagging, twitter, Internet based start-ups etc…
