Sara Ford commands ScooterCam-1 at TechEd07


At TechEd 2007, Sara Ford drives what she calls ScooterCam-1 to get around the conference due to her injured leg from a recent hiking incident (see her blog post Not broken after all). The name ScooterCam is derived from the fact that she hooked up a camcorder to the scooter using duct tape to record first person videos while driving the scooter around the conference. C# developer Rob Robertson of Intel, who Sara and I got to know at the MVP/Influencer party the night before, jumps on the back of ScooterCam for a free ride. The ScooterCam turned out to be a mobile social community gathering during the breaks between sessions.
