SSWC #3 Discussing the future state of the Swedish web

Emily Green Haskell SkrivaPå-Scrive-SSWC-Social Swedish-Web-camp-Tjärö

Social Swedish Web Camp 3 at Tjärö Nature reservoir, Sweden 2011 gathered developers, thinkers and other internet enthusiast to share their thoughts on the ecosystem around the Swedish scene, ideas and culture around the future state of our internet.

Emily Green and I hosted a SkrivaPå tech session about Haskell, we´ll she did most of the talking on functional programming, functors and monads, and i continue looking t tutorials on sundays. I introed a short talk about SkrivaPå and  most of that info can be read in the blogposts here, and the talk can be found on SlideShare.

Pernillan asked me to participate in a talk on how to do an internet un-conference (like GeekGirlMeetup.com) together with Kristin Heionen + Thomas Wennström (who arrange SSWC) and Stellan Löving who arranges Webbcoast in Gothern burg. A lot of questions were raised of how to organize un-conferances and personally I believe control is an illusion, what you can try achieve is adaptability to change and clear communication of the state of the project and how much effort is needed/spend in projects.
A happy and fun thing i observed was PM Nordqvists Twitter printer, that he built during his maternity leave, just for fun.

Talking of fun, this year i did not jump the cliff, like the first and the second year, as i didn’t think it felt like much fun, but mostly pressure. Clapping pressuring hands before i jump wasn’t what I opted in for, I just did it for fun. Altho i was happy to see the fun continue in a good tradition.

The most appreshiated sponsors were as always Binero with morning coffee, chasing away the sheep, and the guerrilla pillow sponsors.
