It’s very much from a Mozilla perspective, so watch it in the light. And also look at some of the other awesome reports. My main points in the talk were:
- The Festival was awesome in terms of energy, diversity and format. People from different worlds (web + learning) became a real community, the connections are still rippling.
- It was a great chance to demo the ‘Drumbeat formula’ -> passionate people + creative hackers = cool shit for the web. Hackfests at Drumbeat created new WebMadeMovies demos and P2PU School of Webcraft app prototypes.
- We added rocket fuel to the work of some amazing innovators in the world of learning and education. There are at least five new web + learning projects coming out of Drumbeat, looks like more.
Of course, not everything went perfectly in Barcelona. The good news: we’re going to do it again next year, probably with a different theme. I’ll post soon with thoughts on next year including what we can do better.
PPS. I promise not to say ‘awesome’ again for another 3 months.
