It seems to me that something like Wordcamp should be done in the UK. The techies have their BarCamp. Why not something around content? And it doesn’t have to be just about WordPress skills…. (I use Drupal for instance).
Perhaps someone could provide a venue? People can showcase their skills/services. And I can learn how to be a better blogger!
I dare say there are a few other people we could bring together to make something happen…
Email me on mike at mbites dot com if you are interested.
