BarCamp Sydney 27 Jun 2009

BarCamp Sydney is on again – so block out Saturday 27 June 2009 in your diary.


This is 5th BarCamp Sydney & the un-organising committee has tagged this one as the Recession Edition or “the BarCamp we had to have” (paraphrasing Keating from 1990).

There’s a new venue this time, with the kind folks at the Australian Technology Park (ATP) Innovations Centre providing the space for free (kudos to them for this support).

Any potential sponsors should get in touch with the the un-organisers and let them know via email.

One innovation that I’m really keen on for this Barcamp is the Think Tank room. The Think Tank room is a small room with no projector and no tech – just enough room for a small group of people discussing ideas. And what better ideas to discuss than ideas about the future. For some more background on this idea check out the Barcamp Sydney blog.
