Toronto Transit Camp happened today at the Gladstone. It was a fantastic romp using a BarCamp format (based in Open Space Technology ) to discuss the TTC and potential solutions to the web site redesign, rider experience, art in the stations, anything the participants felt should be brought into the open. Mark has been pushing the community to move beyond technology unconferences and into Open Creative Communities. TransitCamp represents our first real attempt to involve a larger group of passionate individuals.
There was fantastic support for the “Toronto Transit Camp is not a complaints department, it is a solution playground” attitude. It helped to allow people to raise issues and propose solutions. Tomorrow, time to begin gardening the wiki and preparing for DemoCampToronto12. It’s a fantastic week for events in Toronto.
CityTV covered the event so we must be legit 😉
