Second, a terrific change from the last one was that so many people seemed to be sharing skills and ideas across organisations. People from Tinker.it, the BBC, Inkling, Google, Talis, Omniture, Rabbit, Guardian and elsewhere all mixed it up to produce some really innovative stuff. Added to this, there was a healthy number of people who don’t claim to be programmers creating some very interesting hacks, thanks in part to Simon Willison’s list of Hack Day tools for non-developers.
So among other things we got a tracker of the most controversial articles, a page of search terms that people are using to find guardian.co.uk — live — a social network for dead people, and much, much more.
The photo here shows Matt under the gaze of the Guardian’s inspirational editor CP Scott — or rather a bust of him. I’ve put this photo and others in a Flickr photo pool. If you were there, please feel free to contribute.
