Hi everyone,

I hope it is okay for me to post here.

I am looking forward to Hacktioncamp this weekend and catching up with
anyone that remembers me :)

I am working on a short presentation to deliver this weekend, and thought I

I will try to be brief, but during the talk I would like to cover

- some examples of creators and content, plus how successful they have been
- the general positives and negatives of the scene
- the future potential of the scene

Feedback and suggestions welcome.
