Home Camp mark 2

The second Home Camp event takes place in London tomorrow. I won’t repeat all of the details here, as they are covered over on the Home Camp blog.

We have some wonderful sponsors – CurrentCost, Greenmonk, Onzo, Pachube, and ReactionGrid, with support from theattick who are going to be streaming the event for us as well.

There are some nice pre-event writeups on the Greenmonk and Redmonk blogs.

It’s a shame that due to unforeseen circumstances I’m no longer able to attend, but I’m looking forward to following remotely if I can, and otherwise catching all the content tagged ‘homecamp’ on Flickr, blogs, and Twitter.

The event is open to anyone, so if you are interested in home hacking automation and energy efficiency, you will definitely want to get involved.

Fifteen minutes of fame?

In case you missed it, I chatted with Craig Cmehil on his Friday Morning Report 24 hour marathon this morning. Craig was raising money in aid of Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). He did a tremendous job in producing a great show over a continuous 24 hour period, raising over $4000. I’d originally intended to be involved in the broadcast when Chris Dalby asked me to help him with a Home Camp segment a couple of months ago, but in the end the event was postponed, and we posted Home Camp TV separately.

If you want to see my short slot on the marathon, in which we discussed stuff like what I’ve been up to lately, choice tools for PHP hacking, and IBM enterprise social software and technology adoption – go look at the recorded segment on uStream. I’m on from 57mins in until the end (around 1hr 21).

For my next trick, I should be on the Dan Logan Show on Focal Radio next Monday evening…
