I've spent the weekend geeking out at the latest BarCampLondon in the lovely new offices of The Guardian by the canal at Kings Cross. Two days with lots of meeting people, talking about tech, food, politics, and anything else the attendees feel like talking about.

I ran a session on Stalking for Beginners which was actually more about choosing and using an online handle. What does it say about you if you always use the same name for all services, indeed should you have your 'business life' easily associated with your 'free-time activities', and how can you stop that happening if at all.

Unlike my previous BarCamp I actually went to a session in each timeslot on both days and enjoyed it immensely. If it wasn't for the too much sugar symptoms right now I'd probably be hacking code on some of the many ideas I've been sparked with over the weekend.
