Start of the weekend

September 19, 2008

Just waiting for Mr. McAlpine to pick me up with all the gear for the BCBBC. Hope it is all there. We will probably run out of buttons and T-shirts.

We are meeting up tonight with William, Brent, Denise and Mark, Jeffry, Andrew and Morris and probably others we don’t know about. It has been exciting getting ready and now to think that it will be going ahead. As Tim mentioned, just from comments over a lunch to see this take shape. This will be the 4th BarCampBank I have attended and probably about the 7th BarCamp. One gets used to how things happen and what to expect process wise. But it is always the people and the discussion that give BarCamps a unique colour all their own. I see Jim Bruene has signed up which is super. Lots of credit unions from the Lower Mainland which for me is really a dream come true. IF something like this can be instrumental in establishing a new form, a new process for dialogue and discussion it will be monumental.

I am sure whatever anyone expects will easily be surpassed. Brent and others will be contributing online throughout the day so those not attending can get some flavour of what is happening. My trusty Nikon and newly arrived Texas Flip Mino are fully charged waiting to record the moments for posterity. I envy those who have never attended for all that adrenaline they are going to be using up. Fasten your seat belts, full speed ahead.

    Now we need to create more informal ways CUs in BC or at least Metro Vancouver can get together and share ideas. Let’s make that happen…
