On the weekend of 14-15 May 2016, I joined my partner, Matt Buck @Drawnalism to liveblog the third Open Data Camp at the Watershed in Bristol.
While Matt and his colleague, Royston Robertson, drew the event, I wrote it up live with Adam Tinworth (from ‘One Man and his Blog‘). Liveblogging is an interesting exercise: from a writing perspective, you’re taking accurate notes, looking out for themes and killer quotes, and crafting up a story as you go along, so you’re all but done and dusted by the time the next session comes around.
My background covering councils and courts for local papers came in more than a little handy! Oh yes, and it was a very interesting conference too. Committed people. Great ideas. Excellent venue. And cake… More on working live on the Drawnalism website. Everything from the liveblog on the liveblog.
