Fee Plumley’s great talk at the Haecksen miniconf was on Open Source Cities.

One of the stand out talks for me was Denise Paolucci’s Overcoming Imposter Syndrome.  Denise isn’t a Hackerspace person I just want to highlight her excellent talk.  Her slides are up on Slide Share and you can download the video from the LCA mirror.

Pix gave a talk at the Blue Hackers BOF which unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend because I was at the Interactive Textiles BOF.  If anyone has a photo could they please let me know so that I can include it in this post.

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are the main conference days.  All the conference videos are available for download so if you didn’t make it this year you can still listen to some great talks.
