More on BarCamp Ghana 2010

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I did attend BarCamp Ghana 2010 – which actually makes it my third!  Not too bad, I think.

I will not go on at the length that my colleague, Nana Fredua Agyeman, has written but I would like to offer a few comments.  I did attend the same sessions that Nana mentioned:  journalism and citizen journalism, telling the African story/ies and blogging.

I did miss Farida Bedwei’s presentation though – often one would like to clone oneself so that one can attend more than one session at a time, but it was not to be.  Well, I did see what the Twitter feeds were on the subject (see the hashtag #bcghana), not too detailed but definitely gives one a flavour of what was going on.

For me the best thing was meeting people I may see sporadically – some at GhanaBlogging, some at other BarCamps, but it is also a great chance to meet face-to-face with those one has online contacts.

And I was reminded that there are so many connections between us here in Ghana, as I met someone who was a relative of a work contact who turned out to have attended college in the US where my daughter went for medical/graduate study!  Small world…
