Innovation Camp – The first such “camp” to be held in Brisbane. “The event aims to bring together a diverse group of people from programmers to designers to business minds who are interested in starting and launching a venture from scratch.” Came up with a good idea there (volunteer support site), which was in fact a special use case of another idea I’ve had for a long time (OS Dreams). Developed a prototype, made a presentation, talked to potential users.
