PodCamp Barcelona 2010

And we're back…


PodCamp Barcelona 2010 will take place in El Masnou from September 13 to September 18th. Yes, that’s right, five days of PodCamp Barcelona  — because this year we have a new venue, a new format and a theme: community.



PodCamp Barcelona 2010 se celebrará en El Masnou del 13 al 18 de septiembre. Sí, si, esto es correcto, cinco días de PodCamp Barcelona porque este año tenemos un nuevo local: Els Vienesos; nuevo formato: Talleres y presentaciones, y tema: Comunidad.



PodCamp Barcelona 2010 tindrà lloc a El Masnou del 13 al 18 de setembre. Si, si, correcte, cinc dies de PodCamp Barcelona perquè aquest any tenim local nou: Els Vienesos; nou format: Tallers i presentacions, i tema: Comunitat.


Do 1002 Systems/Layers WalkShop Barcelona FTW!

Damn! this is going to be like getting those X-Ray Spex (no – not talking about the seminal punk band, although they rock too) from old comic books. Adam Greenfield & Nurri Kim are going to be exposing the city, explaining all of those mysterious boxes clamped on to "street furniture", where they are from, what they mean and where they are going. What are those cameras, sensors, and other connected, networked objects doing and why? How are they going to change the city and you & me,  politics and relationships and behaviour and culture. What is going to happen to society and space, public & private?

If you have any interest in cities, technology & society, urban design, the future of public space and relationships you simply DON'T want to miss this – Adam & Nurri have conceived a new format – the Walkshop in which we're going to get down & dirty and see this stuff in situ, not on a bunch of slides, and distinctly run the risk of pissing off security guards.

Check out the video above, shot during the #walkshop in Wellington, and read this blog post to see how CJ Wells rediscovered his barrio:

"Over the course of an hour, Adam pointed out curiosities previously unnoticed. This was my ‘hood. Yet, I had not seen rooftops bristling with aerials, streets covered by security cameras, and buildings shielding black boxes. It was mind blowing…"

The #walkshop is going to be unique event in which a great thinker & communicator riffs on the fabric of the city itself – Bring it on!

Check out this talk from Adam at Urban Labs last year to see the context of the #walkshop


PodCamp Gives Back


(image taken from the presentation "Citilab Model?" by Ramon Sangúesa at I+C+i at CCCB, Barcelona)

So it's pretty late and I'm thinking and watching the world go by on twitter and for some reason PodCamp Barcelona comes to mind. And I've got this idea that all of these incredibly talented, smart, creative, knowledgeable people coming together and sharing is great and that we are creating knowledge and social value with our peers, but it occurs to me that we should take it further. We still have to take an "official" decision about PodCamp Barcelona 2010, but as Cataspanglish we know we want to hold it in El Masnou. So what I'm thinking is that we should give back to the citizens of Masnou who have supported the PodCamp for two years. If all the people who participate in PodCamp are willing I would like to do some concrete things leading up the event itself, Birmingham style Social Media Surgeries, Podcasting workshops, mashup sessions, whatever. Let's share the knowledge and skills we have with the people who are giving us the opportunity to get together – what do you think? Are you in for giving back?



GobCamp is a local government unconference for workers in the Spanish public administration and anyone else interested in the topic. Many people want the public administration to change, to become an open, agile, dynamic, transparent, collaborative, participatory organisation; an admistration close to the citizen which is a bank of shared knowledge with a horizontal structure. The main aim of GobCamp Spain is to bring together all those who are working towards change in local government to discuss what they are doing. Society is changing and both citizens and workers in local government are going to demand change, local authority must respond to this demand. GobCamp will explore how that change can happen.


GobCamp es una AAPP Unconference, para todos los trabajadores de la administración pública española y las personas interesadas en ella. Porque somos muchos que queremos que la administración pública haga un cambio, que se convierta en una administración abierta, ágil, dinámica, transparente, colaboradora, participativa, próxima al ciudadano, que sea un banco de conocimiento compartido y con una estructura horizontal. El objetivo principal es reunir a todas las personas que estamos intentando que las cosas tomen otra dirección en la administración, para debatir y reflexionar sobre las actuaciones que se están llevando a cabo. El cambio social está ahí, el ciudadano y el trabajador lo van a hacer posible, lo van a exigir y la AAPP no podrá ignorarlo, deberá adaptarse. GobCamp explorará como este cambio puede llevarse a cabo.


GobCamp és una AAPP Unconference, per a tots els treballadors de l’administració pública espanyola i les persones interessades en ella. Perquè som molts que volem que l’administració pública faci un canvi, que es converteixi en una administració oberta, àgil, dinàmica, transparent, col·laboradora, participativa, pròxima al ciutadà, que sigui un banc de coneixement compartit i amb una estructura horitzontal. L’objectiu principal és reunir a totes les persones que estem intentant que les coses prenguin una altra direcció a l’administració, per debatre i reflexionar sobre les actuacions que s’estan duent a terme. El canvi social està aquí, el ciutadà i el treballador el faran possible, l’exigiran i l’AAPP no podrà ignorar-ho, haurà d’adaptar-se. GobCamp explorarà com aquest canvi pot fer-se.

Barcelona Girl Geek Dinners


In most of the events, workshops, seminars, meetings etc. related to Internet that we’ve attended, the majority of the speakers and public have been men. A little depressed by the low female presence, Ana began to think about organising an event where the majority of participants and organisers are women and then she found Girl Geek Dinners. She thought it would be interesting, fun and positive to get together from time to time to share experiences at Barcelona Girl Geek Dinners with some good food, wine and company.


En casi todos los actos, seminarios, talleres, reuniones, etc. que hemos asistido relacionados con Internet la mayoría de los asistentes y ponentes son hombres. Un poco decepcionada por la baja presencia femenina, Ana empezó a darle vueltas a la idea de organizar algo donde la mayoría de asistentes, participantes y organizadoras sean mujeres; descubrió Girl Geek Dinners y por eso propone reunirnos de tanto en tanto para compartir nuestras experiencias en buena compañía, con buena comida y buen vino, en el Barcelona Girl Geek Dinners


A gaire bé tots els actes, seminaris, tallers, reunions, etc. que hem assistit relacionats amb Internet la majoria dels assistents i ponents són homes. Una mica dessabuda per la baixa presència femenina, l'Ana va començar a donar-li voltes a la idea d’organitzar alguna cosa on la majoria d’assistents, participants i organitzadores siguin dones; va descobrí Girl Geek Dinners i és per això que proposa reunir-nos de tant en tant per compartir les nostres experiències en bona companyia, amb bon menjar i bon vi, al Barcelona Girl Geek Dinners
