Homecamp moving on

I am happy to continue to moderate the HomeCamp GG, but I am feeling that the level of activity and the absence of events is leading toward the groups obsolescence. Recently I have had enquirers regarding "where HC discussions are happening" and I have to say there is no focused place, but rather a distributed group of places. 

As HomeCamp is now a controlled brand I plan to look for another place to coalesce the core open source aspects of the original HC unconference events I was inspired by. I am sad to do this as I had great hopes for the HomeCamp name as an open resource. 

If you have any suggestions about how to move forward I will keep my feed open for now.

Hi Mike,

I hope there will be some more homecamp unconferences happening again soon.

There may be a London based office hackathon in late Summer 2013, called spacehack which is going to be organised by the 3 beards team which gives people a chance to design and update a work space like we did in C4CC.  They ran a prelude to it earlier this year.  The best way to be informed on it is by joining their mailing list - http://www.3-beards.com/stache.html it is a one-per-week frequency and includes a lot of good London tech event information.

Maybe see you down at the new London Hackspace location or at the next homecamp.

Morning all,

First, thanks to Mike for all his work supporting HomeCamp over the years!

If people *are* looking for other groups (and I'm not saying they are), if you're interested in the sustainability aspects of what Homecamp did, you might be interested in what we're doing with Cleanweb UK (http://cleanweb.org.uk). 

We're organising regular meetups in London (http://www.meetup.com/Cleanweb-London), and building some grassroots developer momentum behind the idea of using the web for sustainability. I know many homecampers are already involved, but we always love seeing more people at our events, so come along and say hello!
