LATEST NEWS --

 

Barcamp starts TODAY! (March 4th).

Sign up below if you haven't already!


 

What is BarCamp

 

(As stolen from BarCampNYC, as copied from...) BarCamp is an ad-hoc un-conference born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees.

 

All attendees must give a demo, a session, or help with one. All presentions are scheduled the day they happen. Prepare in advance, but come early to get a slot on the wall.

 

Presenters are responsible for making sure that notes/slides/audio/video of their presentations are published on the web for the benefit of all and those who can’t be present.

 

Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join.

NO SPECTATORS, ONLY PARTICIPANTS

 

When you come, be prepared to share with barcampers. When you leave, be prepared to share it with the world.

Hosts

 

 

Why

 

To learn, meet people who share different interests, contribute, and push yourself and your thinking.

 

When

 

The evening of *Saturday, March 4th, 2006*, and 9a-6p or so on *Sunday, March 5th, 2006*.

 

There will be dinner, drinks, and possibly demos on the 4th, and a full day of learning and sharing on the 5th.

 

It will be a good warm-up for ETech, just south of LA in San Diego on March 6-9 (take note SF people!), and SXSW Interactive in Austin on March 10-14.

Hardware Needed

 

  • Anyone have an extra mini dvi to vga adapter for Powerbook > Projector? (pls let me know for 2.15 pres - Carmen)
  • Projectors (Heathervescent bringing 1, Dave Bullock bringing 1)
  • Ethernet switches and long cables (Dave Bullock bringing 1x 3Com 24 port 100BaseT.)
  • Power strips and extension cords
  • A simple file server for legal MP3s, PPTs, DivXs, etc. (a laptop with windows file sharing and external HD would work...) (Jerry Schuman from Perssonas/Techaura will bring a server or two.)

 

 

Gear Swap + Electronics Iron Chef - Call for Participation!

 

How the GearSwap/E-Iron Chef works

  • 1. Bring whatever gear you don’t need, want, or are willing to part with via swap or donation old electronic devices (i.e., original palm V, old CD burners,Ethernet cables, etc., to BarCamp LA on Saturday through to Sunday morning at 11am. [ Bring only items you are willing to detach from! You may or may not be able to swap items for other items of "equal value"]
  • 2. You will be issued Swapping Vouchers aka Tickets depending on the items you bring in, which you can redeem or give away for others to redeem on Sunday.
  • 3. Sign up for an E-Iron Chef team/Junkyard Wars, and work with your team members to select and create a functional digital project, which you may work on Saturday evening and Sunday (in the spirit of multi-tasking, you can unobtrusively work on your stuff while listening to other presentations). Those participating in the E-Iron Chef will have first selection of available gear to build their project.
  • 4. Completed projects will be judged, remaining gear will be open for swapping, and whatever gear is left will be donated!
