FOO Camp happens every year, it is an invite-only event for tech luminaries hosted in Sebastopol, CA at the OReilly headquarters. People camp out, have sessions, and work with other great tech minds to come up with awesome ideas. The problem is the exclusivity: everybody isnt invited.
Meet BAR Camp, an open, welcoming, once-a-year event for geeks to camp out for a couple days with wifi and smash their brains together.
BAR Camp will take place in Palo Alto this weekend. Here is the event wiki.
This feels like a flash meeting. The Bat signal appears in the night sky, and all the geeks who see it flock together. I just heard about this on Scripting News half an hour ago, and thought, wow, that’s a spot to research informal learning. At least I’m confident of the informality. Check back next week to find out if I learned anything.
