What do you get in a room of 300 geeks?

…wifi meltdown – that’s what. I would really like to upload all the photos I have taken so far here, but more than 300 geeks all armed with laptops putting finishing touches to their applications, uploading photos, blogging and podcasting means the network is like wading through treacle wearing oversized wellies in slo mo.

Annnoying.

I shall try again later when the geeks have gone out to drink and talk APIs. Interesting stuff so far though. Lots of talk about grassroots journalism, citizen media and open source. Good stuff from Dan Gillmor.** And there is a contingent of bees here evangelising* about Hivecasting. It is the future for insect networking.

Weather is great here. Warm. But I am freezing in an auditorium. Hope it is pissing down in Glastonbury.

*Every second person seems to be an evangelist.
**Who reminds me of Dustin Hoffman.
