BarCamp (II) Amsterdam & LED throwies

I’m just back from a weekend in Amsterdam. The bag worked out brilliant and I had a wonderful time.

In the spare time I had, I tried to attend BarCamp (II), which was held in the Post CS building near the Central Station in Amsterdam. In the end, I didn’t spend that much time there, but there was a nice atmosphere to hang out, so whenever there’s a BarCamp (III) in Amsterdam, I’ll be there. *^_^*

On saturday-night I also spent some hours in the same building, but then on the eleventh floor (or is it the the twelfth floor?)

But, the main reason I came to Amsterdam this weekend was Nerd Alert: Led Throwies. Nerd Alert is the name of a regular in the magazine Bright to which I contribute for a while now. (I contribute to the magazine and the website, the article has been for the magazine. This weekend was for getting content for the website) It was getting time I got my hands dirty on film *^_^*

The best preview can be had when you view the pics my editor in chief, Erwin, made. He just bought a brand new camera, so he’s a little triggerhappy ^_^ (which is a good thing!) (click any of the pics to go to his photoset on Flickr) I made some pics with my phone too, they can be seen overhere.

The magazine, Bright No. 9, will be in stores (in Holland and Belgium…) coming thursday and when everything works out, there should be something up on bright.nl coming friday. ^_^
