The coming Friday through Sunday is going to be a bubble bonanza, as 200+ people gather up in the meat LAN named Sweden Social Web Camp (SSWC). But I will not be there, and feel obliged to tell why.

When Tomas Wennström in April announced the idea as ”Årets hajk”, he set the date to coincide with my daughters birthday. I would lie if I said that the choice of staying with my family is easy, because SSWC really looks promising. It does not help that I just came home from another (scouting) camp.

I love camping, both the traditional ones and the emerging meeting format. I love and respect Tomas Wennström. I love the people who have registered for his ”hajk”. But I love my daughter and my family even more.

Maybe next year… Meanwhile, have fun and go create some amazing conversations!
