BarCamp Omaha 2010: Jam session video, afternoon photos & more

As I wrote in a post earlier today, BarCamp Omaha 2010 was an exclamation point to a great week on the Silicon Prairie. After startup funding and acquisition news this past week, we inside the Silicon Prairie News office were riding a high, and Dusty Davidson, co-founder of Silicon Prairie News was hustling like the rest of BarCamp Omaha team to set up for Saturday.

What went down on Friday night and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. was a successful day of talks, networking, collaboration and fun. Here a few tweets from the day-long un-conference that capture some of the activity (click on the user name for the original tweet):

One of more memorable occurrences at this year’s BarCamp Omaha, and I believe will be a new addition to the annual event, was a lunch jam session, or as the organizer called it, “BarCamp 2010: The Musical.” In a blog post last Wednesday, Gabe Kangas made the announcement:

So here’s a call to all Barcamp participants who have access to any kind of simple, acoustic, portable instrument that is jam-able (hammered dulcimer, Roland 808: maybe not so much. Think hand drum, acoustic guitar, rain sticks, stand-up bass, iPhone, didgeridoo, you get the idea.)
