With less than a week to go, half the tickets for the UK’s first WordCamp have been sold.
In particular, from my point of view as WordCamp UK coordinator, the substantial work involved in organising the event has been spread amongst a number of mailing list subscribers.
This has been particularly useful in making arrangements for staging the WordCamp in Birmingham – even more useful when taking into account I’m based in London!
The running order is nearing its final version, and I’m not expecting further significant changes to be made.
Admission to WordCamp UK 2008 is only by tickets purchased online – so book now to ensure your place!

Commercial radio companies Global Radio and GCap have announced staff cuts impacting on radio stations across the country.
If approved by regulators, Global Radio will take over GCap to form the UK’s largest commercial radio group.
The level of cuts in the group does not augur well for the future.
The Guardian’s Organ Grinder pretty much reflects my view on the subject.
A twenty word summary by Digitagit, in a comment to the Guardian piece, gets right to the point.
Do they not understand that music radio is now much more about what’s in between the music?
If stations just play music, the audience will go elsewhere, either to other stations that invest in production, or to their own playlists using a myriad of digital devices.
