Collected lots of pics and follow-up posts from this past weekend’s BarCamp in Charlotte. I’ll post a cleaned up version on cultivate creativity this weekend. If you know of more, post up in the comments. Also, let me know if you’d like to be credited differently than what I’ve done here…

More specifically, here are contributions from Andy Ciordia, Wayne Sutton, David Zimm, Lisa Hoffmann, Brian Cary, Matt Tyndall, Gregor Smith, Brian and Cara, Neil Cowley, and James Willamore. Taking the road less Flickred are pics from Carolina Nightlife and Alphatracks. We’ve got pre-party photos from Matt Tyndall and James Willamore, and James also has a cool set of the CLT Blog crew.

Public gives feedback on trail system

By now, most of us have heard about the Carolina Thread Trail, the proposed network of 400 miles of trails knitting together 15 counties in North and South Carolina.

Gaston County, N.C., and York County won $50,000 grants for planning and design. Their work will be pilot programs for the overall trail plan.

On Wednesday, about 30 people met at Manchester Meadows for a public meeting about the trail. The primary goals of the meeting were to inform the public about the trails network and to get public input and ideas.
