Conference livestream link & press coverage


First off, a huge THANK YOU to everyone who helped with the conference and the nearly 300 folk who came along on Saturday – especially all the speakers, everyone who invited speakers, all the volunteers, and folk who brought stalls. And extra special thanks to Pat for organising the creche and organising/coordinating the volunteers, Sam for coordinating volunteers, Graeme for organising the stalls and inviting loads of speakers, Gill for welcoming folk with her legendary panda suit, Ross for dealing with the press and doing loads of tweeting, and Duncan and everyone else on the conference team for all their hard work.

If you missed the conference, the main sessions and several smaller sessions were livestreamed by the lovely folk at Independence Live (big thank you to them too!), and you can watch here:
