Another point of view...

Chris Lightfoot posts an alternate take on the ConConUK gathering.

I like what he says about some of the talks, even if it is a bit harsh. To be honest, I think some of ETCon was complete guff, and ConConUK had to reflect that.

But this quote, reflecting on Tom Steinberg's talk on the Dean campaign caught my eye.

The internet, as a political tool, is a kind of LASER for idiocy: idiocy bounces back and forth between a bunch of web logs, reinforcing itself into a coherent beam of insanity, which can then be focussed on a political problem... on which it has no effect at all.

Have no memory of the 'berating the official from Downing Street' though. That sounded fascinating.
