Where did July go?

Was it really a month ago when we were making the final preparations for the fourth VCSSCamp? Yes it was and since then July seems to have flown by!

Anyway, we opened the lid on the ‘social media stockpot’ to see what had been captured from the event in the various on-line spaces … and were pleasantly surprised by all the tweets, pictures, blogs and even video from the day.

We’ve pulled together all those we can find in this blog post, but if anything has been missed (or you still have a blog in draft you keep meaning to post!) then please add the links in the comments and we’ll update the post as a record of YOUR day.

A separate blog post is to follow listing your feedback from the Post-Its in the final wrap-up session.

I connect people and communities to get the most from technology and the web. I do this for adult social care providers with @lasaict, through e-learning with @learningpool and through consultancy and surgeries with CVSs and other support networks. I helped set up @oursocietyuk and co-ran the first ever #vcsscamp. I like listening, linking and real beer & hate seeing the wheel being reinvented and sweetcorn.
