Geeks galore!

The logo which Jimmy wales would remember on hearing "India"

Unconference is an ‘un’happening event which works in an unorganized way. “The day was sculpted!” as I borrow the phrases from the kick off session by Kiruba Shankar. Indian blogging legends like Kiruba, Amit Agarwal, wikipedians like Bhadani were present and last but the great Jimmy Wales whom I could shake hands with and capture a photo of his in my mobile.

Web 2.0 or collective intelligence would have been more appropriate name for the occasion as all the presentation and workshops were on wiki, 3D gaming, envisioning computing et al.

Things that caught my attention:

Imagine a world in which every single person on the planet is given free access to the SUM of all human knowledge – quote by Jimmy
How twitter works? - From a side talk with Jax
Veni, Vedi, Wiki - a creative caption for Wiki by TKF
Liveblogging - by participants

We, the audience, were also provided with a stress ball to hurl at boring lecturers!

for photos: Search using tags "Wikicamp" in flickr or YouTube.
