On 3rd & 4th November IBM hosted the second Mad Scientist event with the LJC.
Website is here but may disappear eventually.
We had IBM, LJC Redhat, BlueBear, Oxford Brookes and others turn up and show off their mad scientist credentials. Since our exhibition was shown inside the Big Data London exhibition and conference I claim a world first of hosting an exhibition inside another. Russian Doll exhibitions have arrived 🙂
It was really great fun – totally exhausting two days but everyone – attendees and exhibitors thought it was great. A welcome change to the more traditional booth-style interaction method.
I’m hoping we can keep the momentum going with this approach but it is challenging. The main thing being to convince the exhibitors that people would be interested in the stuff they’ve done.
