The Social Innovation Camp aims at bringing together some of the best of the UK and Europe's web developers and designers with people at the sharp end of social problems. Unfortunately the deadline for sending your 'ideas' is over - but the idea of a camp like that is awesome!
"What happens when you get a bunch of software developers and social innovators together, give them a set of social problems and only 48 hours to solve them?

In London between 4th-6th April 2008, the Social Innovation Camp will bring together some of the best of the UK and Europe's web developers and designers with people at the sharp end of social problems.
Our aim is to find ways that easy-to-build web 2.0 tools can be used to develop solutions to social challenges."
