If you are quick, there’s just a little more time to grab one of the last few tickets (around 20 as i post this) for the event in London next Monday afternoon and evening.
We’ve got (more-or-less) full details for you now. The event is going to be a little different to the previous two, with some pre-arranged tracks due to the shortened timeslot not providing quite so much scope for the unconference format to work.

Mike’s GreenTech Spaces Spotlights
There will be a separate area with displays about GreenTech, HomeTech, HackSpaces & much more, run by MikeTheBee.
If you are creative, enjoy tech & automation or would like to meet up with those featured in Mike’s Podcast, this is your chance to get together, to socialise in a special space, to learn about what each does, the technology and how to create with it, to explore opportunities to collaborate for fun or the future. If you are a member of a group, please have someone bring info about your group for a display to represent your Space.
An exciting couple of weeks in the HomeCamp community as the rumours began to circulate on Twitter that MikeTheBee had pushed things forward and found a venue for HomeCamp 3. Mike is the man behind the HomeCamp podcast, so if you weren’t already subscribed to that, you should check it out!
So here’s the big reveal: HomeCamp 3 will be on December 13th 2010, 4-8pm at the Centre for Creative Collaboration (C4CC) in London. There are suggestions of an evening social gathering as well…
… it is an a place with a real buzz, not for the building itself, which is intended to be ‘a blank canvas’ but for all the creative work going on in the corners. Electroluminescent clothing and Arduino controller being sewn in one corner, people bouncing on paving slabs to generate power in another, more Arduino’s controlling bits of a re-constructed piano awaiting it’s next performance, and there are always new surprises.
Sounds pretty cool! So, it’s all go. You can go ahead and sign up right now at the EventBrite page, and also track the event on the uber-cool new social conferences site, Lanyrd (you can also find HomeCamp 1 and HomeCamp 2 on Lanyrd as well, and add your coverage if you attended them).
While we’re in the mood, we’ve tidied up some of the web presences around the HomeCamp community, fixed the About page, the links in the blog sidebar have been updated to point at the current location of the wiki, Flickr group etc, and we’ll probably switch across to a funky new Facebook page (instead of a group) in the near future.
