Posted in Blog News, This is VCSSCamp

Where did July go?

Was it really a month ago when we were making the final preparations for the fourth VCSSCamp? Yes it was and since then July seems to have flown by!

Anyway, we opened the lid on the ‘social media stockpot’ to see what had been captured from the event in the various on-line spaces … and were pleasantly surprised by all the tweets, pictures, blogs and even video from the day.

We’ve pulled together all those we can find in this blog post, but if anything has been missed (or you still have a blog in draft you keep meaning to post!) then please add the links in the comments and we’ll update the post as a record of YOUR day.

I've worked in the voluntary sector listening to people and helping them use technology for 17 years and believe strongly that people come first and technology second. My latest work is with Lasa helping older people's organisations small social chare charities use tablet devices for living well and develop their own technology plans & ideas. I'm always learning from people I talk to at meet-ups and bring experience of running the NetSquared Midlands Meet-up, VCSSCamp unconferences and many social media surgeries. I'm also the UK & Europe contact for the NetSquared Tech for Social Good meet ups. I connect people and communities to get the most from technology and the web. I like listening, linking and real beer & hate seeing the wheel being reinvented and sweetcorn.
