Come on out for Seattle BarCamp (not held in bar, sorry)

BarCampSeattle logo
Most of us Metbloggers are geeks in one form or another. We tend to like things that appeal to our individual geekeries.

So what would happen if you could get all the web-related geekeries together into one weekend of geekgasm? You’d get a BarCamp, a big social gathering of techies, social media types, bloggers, coders, and Internet Celebrities to throw ideas at one another. It’s like MindCamp, only the people are a little prettier and dilletantish. But the presentations are fun, and you get to meet really smart people that do cool things.

Seattle’s first BarCamp is this weekend, June 14-15 at the Fremont Adobe campus. A sizable cadre of Metbloggers will be showing up. Why don’t you come, too? It is free, after all, with free food and swag (and a free round at the Red Door Saturday night). Register now.

    Actually it’s the first general BarCamp but the second of the format, BankBarCamp was held last June or July.

    Actually, MindCamp long predated both of them and runs on a similar format. But this is the first real, true Seattle BarCamp.

    Really excited about this one, and I’m coming in from LA for it. Mighty-O donuts will be there! See you then.

    I would like to point out that you don’t need to be a technophile, geek or even care about computers to come to BarCamp. The panels are not necessarily going to be web or techie related…ya probably the majority but to give an example, I will be running a discussion called "Nerd Bait." :)

    Yes, but MindCamp doesn’t have "BarCamp" in the name :)
