Skill Swap

29th April 2003

Via Zeldman, Skill Swap is a community based new mania free training scheme based in Brighton:

SkillSwap is a voluntary group set up by members of the local web design community and specifically members of the Brighton New Media mailing list.

The idea is that on a semi-regular basis, people from the local new media community volunteer to give up some of their free time to train a small group of their peers in a subject that interests them.

It piqued my interest because it seems to be similar to the model we’re hoping to achieve with our student computer society, BCSS.
