UKGovCamp13 - Braindump
Saul Cozens: "A network can not only be applied to the major problem of changing an organisation’s culture, but simply by existing, it will change the culture. It will provide a place for new traditions and norms to establish themselves."

Why don’t we trust networks to do things at scale? #ukgovcamp13 #lsis13 « Podnosh
Nick Booth: “The answer to a lot of public sector problems do sit in developing healthy networks and developing and encouraging the cultures which help networks thrive.  Do that and  people tend to do what makes sense, rather than what is prescribed.”  I was trying to understand why achieving this is so difficult and suggested that it was a problem with scale

Sphereless: UKGC13: Together we have the tools and guts to kill off antiquated democracies
6loss: "Whatever it was, it feels like the ideas and debates at govcamp now have much heavier implications outside its gathering. I wonder if what people saw, heard and discussed made them feel more able to challenge the status quo, at a time when new questions, new answers, and fundamentally new ways of doing "government" are correctly needed."

A Shiny World: UK Gov camp 2013
Louise Kidney: "Don't let the fire go out. This isn't a game of tame the dragon. It's the long game and 20 years from now, there are at least 20 people within the corridors and rooms of UKGC who I'd be very happy to see in CEX and CEO roles across the public sector."

A few take home pointers from GovCamp 2013 | Digital democracy, news, thinking, tips & tricks
Rowena Farr: "The key question we must ask when moving services online is ‘where is the customer?’ or as one attendee put it, we must ‘socialise the operation rather than operationalise the social’. People mustn’t go from a friendly voice on the phone to a cold and impersonal website."

Some things about Govcamp #ukgc13 | Perfect Path
Lloyd Davis: "The conversations could have been edgier for my liking.  I worry that there aren’t enough “let’s kill this sacred cow” sessions being pitched, not enough argument, fighting, death threats, throwing of furniture"

Govcamp tunes in public sector's digital channel - Government Computing Network
David Bicknell, Government Computing: "The format and agenda for the event is unique: there isn't one until the attendees stand up and 'pitch' a session, usually to a combination of whoops, polite applause or friendly banter from their colleagues for the day."

#UKGC13 – Notes on Session re Big and Small Companies Innovating Together | Jonathan Flowers
Jonathan Flowers: "There was discussion of the “Partner Ecosystem” and “Partner World” at IBM and Microsoft.  For Microsoft the challenge is which of the 37,000 partners to use for a particular problem .  For IBM a key innovative role of small companies is using and innovating on their platforms to develop new products for a wider range of client segments than IBM can itself specialise in."

Cardiac surgery in hoodies | Digital skills for emergencies and resilience
Ben Proctor: "Things are not, to my mind, sorted. It is not the job of ukgovcamp to sort them, nor can anyone claim a constituency from the govcamp movement. But those who agree that there is a problem can, if they chose to, try to do something about it."

A manifesto may not be the right way to frame the problem. Maybe some user stories might be more appropriate.

You went to UKGovCamp, what next? | Kind of Digital
Dave Briggs: "How you get open, collaborative working practices going within a large organisation is jolly tricky and the answers probably won’t be found in a blog post. However, start small and you can achieve great things. So, the most obvious thing to do, I think, is to run your own GovCamp."
