What’s that fresh smell around here? Yes, it’s the scent of new TransportationCamps brewing…

Get back into the TransportationCamp West vibe with Streetfilms‘ video wrap.
Thanks to everyone for two days of productive unconferencing. Check the #transpo hashtag on Twitter for session by session coverage. We’ll be in touch with a survey and a Streetfilm soon.
Code for America founder Jennifer Pahlka spoke Sunday morning at TransportationCamp West about her experience working with government agencies on opening data streams, as well as Code for America’s mission to build open-source applications for cities.
TransportationCamp has truly benefitted from the ever-present Code for America fellows. They showed up en mass to the Third Thursdays kickoff happy hour, led variety of #Transpo sessions over the weekend, and even authored an Ignite talk (a great one on a car-free family from Aaron Ogle).
Note to friends of #Transpo: Code for America is currently accepting applications for 2012 Fellowships. Apply today and maybe tomorrow you too can look this cool.
Truly torrential downpour did not stop TransportationCamp West’s day one Ignite talk + party at Automattic Lounge.
Many thanks again to our MC, Josette Melchor from Gray Area Foundation for the Arts (below), our seven great presenters, and our open bar sponsor, Red Hat.

Great exchanges were going down everywhere you looked today at TransportationCamp.
West’s lunchtime keynote speaker Ryan Popple is a member of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers’ Greentech team, and previously served as the Senior Director of Finance at Tesla Motors. Popple went deep into the limitation of the oil economy—even down to the inefficiencies of the combustion engine.
