4iP supporting BarCampScotland 2009

In 2007 I was one of a merry band of four geeks and entrepreneurs who kicked off the BarCamp phenomenon in Scotland. Back for its third year now, I'm over the moon that 4iP is able to support an event that can provide the launchpad for new collaborations, ideas and inspiration in the online and mobile space.

The invite is open to the event on March 14th at Edinburgh's School of Informatics' Appleton Tower, and anyone with an interest in learning more about what's going on in the digital space or who has something to share can sign up their name on the BarCampScotland site.

BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees. In the evening there is a (for some time, at least) free bar and one of the country's best opportunities to network with a wide range of entrepreneurs, startups, coders, creatives and researchers.

The opportunity for learning how Scotland's own technologies and talent can further our ideas is priceless. You can get a flavour for previous events on Flickr. The pic here is from Mike Coulter.
