We somehow managed to pull it off again, and BarCampMilwaukee3 happened without any unfortunate incidents, even though there was threat of desks being burned to the ground…

In the coming weeks I will try to follow-up on specific things about BarCampMilwaukee3, but for now I will just ramble on aimlessly…

Wifi seemed good and the internet connection worked. This probably sets a new record for Bucketworks.

I did not get to complete my robot, but it looks like Royce Pipkins may be starting up a Milwaukee Robotics Club. (Possibly meeting at Bucketworks.)

We had a desk building competition (sponsored by Bucketworks) and I did not win, despite building two (yes two!) amazing desks…

Blake Hall and I (mostly Blake!) started working on the new BarCampMilwaukee web site & infrastructure. We should be done before BarCampMilwaukee4…

We’ll be discussing what worked/what didn’t and ideas for future *Camps in Milwaukee, including some sort of “FoodCamp” and DrupalCampWI2, and WordCamp, and others I forgot about…

Discussing where? At Web414 on Thursday, October 9th, 2008… 7PM at Bucketworks in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    I’m looking forward to completing my robot as well. I got everything soldered & we tried to program it, but I guess there was a failure somewhere as the programmer didn’t seem to be able to talk to the chip. I’m going to double check my soldering work before the first MKEbots (http://mkebots.org) meeting and hopefully get something up and running.

    From my point of view this was an entirely successful barcamp. I didn’t hear many complaints, but I heard some. I’ll hopefully be attending the web414 meeting tomorrow for post barcamp discussion.

    Somehow I missed the robot-making. Too many great sessions.

    I suppose this will be strong incentive to attend BCMKE4 next year. I’ll have to make a point to block off the robot-building sessions.

    So where are the pictures? I’d love to see them! Both the robots and the desks!
