This weekend at the downtown offices of Fleishman Hillard, 100 or so geeks gathered for BarCamp to talk about matters technological. I know what you’re thinking already, “Geeks, inside on a weekend? Shocking!” But it’s more than that. So many things are happening on the web these days, the advent of the true mobile web, the adoption of portable identities, people creating content and sharing, and a lot of that is happening here in our backyard as well as out on the west coast.
BarCamp’s about getting geeks and technologists and smart people all in the same room to learn about new things from the perspective of the attendees. No paid speakers. No preplanned agenda. Just people getting together and throwing a conference. Major ups to the BarCamp Planning group, who found good meeting space downtown, good presenters and smart folks to talk about smart things. Here’s hoping we’ll be able to sponsor future BarCamps the way we sponsored this one.
