BarCampTdot aka BarCampToronto2.0, TorCamp2, BarCampTrawna, BarCampHogtown, BarCampBigSmoke is happening May 13-14 at Liberty Village, mesh Conference. Yes, we know it’s Mother’s Day, we’re working around it, we’re doing our very best to have a work-life balance but this is when people were available. So bring your kids, bring your Mom (or Mum), come out and participate.
Mark Stephenson, who provided some super swanky logos for BarCampOttawa, has provided a couple of sexy logos for BarCampTdot (As Bryce points out the PNG version has rounded corners and no transparency, time to get out the Photoshop, Fireworks or GIMP). Add one of these to your site, to a blog post, to the wiki.
A couple of weekends ago a group of us travelled to Ottawa for BarCampOttawa, it looks like a bunch of Ottawa campers and Vancouver campers are making their way to Toronto for BarCampTdot. Avi Bryant and Andrew Catton in town from Vancity and were at the last DemoCamp where they demoed DabbleDB. With the Bryght crew rolling in, and others this should be the best BarCampToronto yet!
We have been getting some great press coverage of our events with Bryce and W.R. on the front page of the Technology section of the Ottawa Citizen. And more indepth article calling BarCampOttawa a “geekfest success” there seems to be no end to our coverage. Rick Spence covered the BarCampToronto and DemoCamp scene in his latest column, Meet the new web,
for Profit Magazine (thought I am still not sure how an unconference gets coverage in a magazine called Profit).
