BarCamp Hong Kong 2008, A Great Event Experience!

BarCamp Hong Kong 2008 Sep 6 was a great event for sure but it was a bad timing for me.  I reported 2days sick leave this week and still not fully recovered from flu.  Yesterday night (Sep 5) my nose was still running non-stop and I thought I couldn’t make it.  Therefore I am so glad that my nose loves BarCamp but I regret that I couldn’t make more friends cause I don’t want to pass on any virus.

Comparing to last year BarCamp, my keyword for this year is “UPGRADED”.  We got a NICER VENUE with 5 conference rooms (Turner International), MORE DRINK OPTIONS (Latte, Expresso, Chinese Tea with nice coffee mug and “lovely ah sim – sorry forgot her name” to serve us, really thanks her for all the extra works during Saturday.  And of course the well-known Hong Kong bloggers’ friend Drinkazine Tea.), MORE GADGETS (T-Shirt & badge by Dookaz, Lanyard by Flying Tiger Web Design, Mobile Charm by Yahoo!) and MANY MORE! Thanks to all the sponsors, the “hardware” are gorgeous and talking about the “software”, the 6 sessions that I attended in Room 1 (I stayed in Room 1 cause I had to record the talks for MobileRadio) were also excellent.  You can have a glimpse of the talk “Creative Commons Hong Kong by Ben Cheng” in Facebook while more audio and video clips will be available in later on.

This year more people use Cantonese to conduct their presentation.  I am so glad to see it happens cause last year was English only, like people didn’t dare to speak their mother tongue but Hey! this is BarCamp Hong Kong and speaking Cantonese is normal.  This change would certainly help next year’s BarCamp promotion.  Another good thing is the organizers did remind everyone to help cleaning up the trash, I am sure that lovely ah sim will be very happy when she goes back to the office on Monday.

I’ve uploaded my photos to Flickr but I recommend everyone should take a look at the photos from Ryanne, her photos are ALWAYS SUPER NICE.  And once again I want to thanks all the sponors and organizers for making BarCamp Hong Kong happened, I’M LOVIN IT!
