Looking forward to WhereCamp.eu

En route to WhereCamp.eu (12-13 March 2010) ….

Having forgone the opportunity to be in the Czech Republic for XMLPrague, I decided to do some preparation for two days initiation into location-based computing at WhereCamp.eu.

So I started two projects before arriving: a sunrise/sunset calculator and a gps hardware hack. The calculator working and the £20 GPS USB dongle (from maplin) is emitting data – although it took a while to figure how to scan the com ports to detect which one was emitting the data. The plan before the event is to create graphs of annual sunrise/sunset data for given locations in SVG using the input from the GPS. But the point of these events is to be receptive to new deas – so who knows what will emerge.

So long as I can get to see the rugby tomorrow, follow xmlprague and sxsw, and find somewhere to crash tonight, there should be something interesting to demonstrate soon.
