BarCampMadison Go!

Just got an email from Ken Rheingans, letting us know that BarCampMadison is all set, and will happen March 3rd & 4th, 2007 in Madison Wisconsin at the Inn on the Park Hotel.

Also, a big thanks to Stratagem for being the location sponsor and covering half of the net connection fees.

Expect a planning meeting in the beginning of January, and after that promotion and planning will go into full swing. Let’s make this as awesome (if not more awesome) than BarCampMilwaukee.


BarCamps Gone Wild!

Back in July I wasn’t too sure how easy it would be to pull of BarCampMilwaukee, but we did it. It was hard work, but totally doable…

BarCampMadison is currently being planned for February 2007, and I’m sure that will go fine. Plenty of people involved in BarCampMilwaukee will also be involved in BarCampMadison, in one way or another.

But those Madison folks, they just had to raise the bar… they’ve announced BarCampUSA, which will be a 4 day event at the Jefferson County Fair Park in August 2007. The site says:

We are expecting 5000+ participants (our location can accommodate 20,000+)

Now that’s crazy… But more power to them! I hope they (we?) can pull it off. (Advice: you’re gonna need one hell of an internet connection to satisfy that many geeks!)
