If you're going to be anywhere near the vicinity of Silicon Valley in mid August, mark your calendar for the 18th + 19th. That's when the next BarCamp anniversary bash takes place. If you're somehow unfamiliar with it, BarCamp is:
an ad-hoc gathering 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.
SocialText will again host the event, but that's just the beginning. This year (which sounds like a whole lot of fun), it will:
take place full circle back in the same place it started: SocialText's offices... and spilling out into the streets! Yep. We will be working with SocialText to get this puppy off the ground with the goal of having a multi-office party starting SocialText's offices... and maybe looping in nearby neighbors like Facebook, iMeem, IDEO, Edgeio and so on.
