DemoCamp Victoria 01

by Yule Heibel on April 4, 2008

I’ll post more later when I have time, but Boris Mann and Tris Hussey are first past the post getting info about last night’s DemoCamp Victoria on to the web.

This first-ever session was organized by Mark Lise, and hosted at the Juliet Presentation Centre (834 Johnson St.) by Dave Chard (Chard Development), Wendy Pryde, and Jessica Pryde (Juliet Living).

Tris was really fast with flickr photos and a liveblogged session and Boris posted an interview with Wendy last night to, which you can find on his page (right sidebar). [Edit: Boris just posted a direct link to his interview with Wendy Pryde, here.]


There must have been well over 60 people there — 48 chairs, all filled, plus a whole bunch of people standing room only, and 7 people presented (which is a lot).

I’ll write some more (with links) about those demos, but for now, check out Tris’s liveblog transcript — which ends thus:

Wow this space is being offered for free for future events! Â Talk about great support for the Victoria tech community! Â Props to them!

Yikes, Kudos to Dave Chard!

Here’s a photo from Tris’s flickr photo stream. That’s Jessica pouring libations in the first photo …ah! Check out the rest, too…

Yule, it was great to meet you last night! I had a chance to chat with Dave as I was leaving and he is excited about social media. It is great to have this kind of support from the business community and with such an awesome location to boot!

Last night’s event was absolutely amazing, and am definitely looking forward to the next one. Btw, great to finally meet you and it looks like the site might be a huge assist in our project (Professional Reading Environment [PReE]) – thanks!

Wasn’t that awesome? I’m so glad we had a great turnout – Victoria has clearly shown it’s need for an open community such as this.

It was great to meet you, too, Tris and Gels! Lots of good energy in the room last night, that’s for sure — and yeah, Mark, we definitely need more like this. As it does in other cities, DemoCampVictoria could also serve to bring on board people from other communities here (art, design, etc.)… except of course that we’d eventually need to take over the Save-on-Foods Memorial Arena, haha!

@Gels Diigo rocks. I have a group specifically for Canadian stuff feel free to join and add to it. Bookmarks posted there go on the sidebar of my blog.

Starting a new group is easy and an awesome way to share info.
