October 20, 2005 BarCamp NYC! Finally something to do on the east coast!!! http://barcamp.org/index.cgi?BarCampNYC BarCamp is (from the Wiki): “BarCamp is an ad-hoc un-conference born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn are welcome and invited to join. When you come, be prepared to share with barcampers. When you leave, be prepared to share it with the world.” It’s just getting rolling, so there’s no set date yet but it will be before the new year. If you can please spread the word on your own blogs and let’s show those Valley guys how we roll in the NYC 🙂 Amit Gupta is putting it together, you can see the post here: http://amitgupta.com/blog/shoebox/2005/10/19/barcamp-nyc/. He recently did some work with super hero Seth Godin on http://www.changethis.com/. Should be fun to chat with him about that. UserScape (my company for all you new readers) is also on board to sponsor something or other. We’ll get it figured out once we see how many folks are coming.
