the first BarCamp Tampa was lots of fun - there are some posts and freshly edited wiki pages over at the Tampa group on Florida Creatives.
We had a great event last night. Some fun talks and some serendipitous moments. We even had one guy from Orlando, never heard of BarCamp, came up and started talking to us and then did his own talk.

A few years ago at the second Orlando Puppet Festival, I was trying to sell Heather Henson on the idea of my podcasting about the festival becoming official. Needless to say, she's super-busy running the festival, and we don't have time to get into all the ins and outs of podcasting, so she asks me to give her a sample. The next time I see Heather I hand her a CD, and she's grateful for the ability to time-shift her decision-making process.
My First Video on Flickr fit the new requirements perfectly: less than 90 seconds, and less than 150MB. That's fantastic, and the streaming in good, embed codes, tagging, fits right into my flickr photo/video stream, awesome.
...is happening right now over on Robert Dempsey's blog - he gave some highlights from the weekend at BarCamp and some of the many events and discussions around the idea of forming a technology association in Central/all of Florida.
I obviously had something to say, and I think this conversation is headed in a healthy direction. If you want to get involved, please check out Robert's blog and the subsequent comments.
Here are my words:
Had a great talk of about 35 minutes. I will link to folks' blogs and stuff in a few minutes, but I just realised I hadn't posted this yet. Flash player coming soon too.
Some talking points:
