Last Saturday was CreativeCamp in Kilkenny. Basically it’s an informal get together of creatively minded people to discuss, debate and network. It was my first time to attend one of these events and, to be frank, I wish I had attended more in the past. It was superb. The whole structure of the day was just so easy and free flowing. I saw the genuine passion for “Web 2” and the ideas and startups developing in Ireland. In fact the scene seems to be more vibrant away from Dublin.
I met and listened to some great people including: Bernie Goldbach (like a human tornado of ideas and concepts), Ellybabes (dashed over when I turned the rugby on the laptop), Ken McGuire, the guys from Blacknight (Michele, Keith, Niall, George, Niamh and Cara), Jason Roe, Will Knott, Alan O’Rourke, John Handelaar, Damian Beresford and John O’Connor and finally Conor O’Nolan.
Afterwards I had dinner with some of the guys and then a few beers with John H, Will, Jason and Alan before retiring to bed. Looking forward to the next one already.
