Based on holding a local barcamp twice a year, BarCampDallas4 is Saturday, September 29, 2007.

Proposed Topics


Exploring the Personal MBA (saw request for this at barcampHouston2)


Discussion or presentation on Adobe apps: Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR), Flex3, ColdFusion8 download


And discuss from Microsoft: Silverlight download, Expression Web download, Photosynth labs.live.com


Can tags (user-generated taxonomies) replace a pre-defined taxonomy? (SIGCHI from CHI-WEB discussion, Hal Shubin)... (one) can use tags to do some searching, but it's a very simple search... (and) what about an advanced search with tags? Maybe multiple-term clouds.


Perhaps one day of the BCD4 (BarCampDallas4) could be devoted to a Design Crawl and Walking Camp like this one in SF: http://orange-sf.pbwiki.com/


The Creative Space Team will be launching a new product called "A blank site". Come check it out.
