BALTIMORE CHARTING THE NEXT COURSE IN SOCIAL MEDIA

 

BALTIMORE, MD (5/5/08) --- Where is the social web going? It's going mobile, to geocentric services, and to open platforms. On May 10th at the University of Baltimore a community of like minded developers, social media gurus and thought leaders will attend an unconference to discuss the future of the social web. Thought leaders from DC to Boston will converge upon Baltimore to meet, forge relationships, and envision the future.

 

SocialDevCamp East is a BarCamp-style event. BarCamp is an international network of user generated conferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants. The first BarCamp was held in Palo Alto, CA in 2005. Since then 31 BarCamps have been held in cities around the world. And now under the guidance of planners, David Troy of Roundhouse Technologies, LLC Ann Bernard and Keith Casey of WhyGo Solo.com, Baltimore will be added to the list.

 

According to Dave Troy, “Part of what we're doing here with SocialDevCamp East is telling a story: a story about how there is latent intellectual capital and talent here on the East coast that wants to emerge, evolve and change the world. It's the story of a new kind of silicon valley happening here – an Amtrak metropolis from DC to Boston rich with talent, schools, and industries that will shape much of the future of technology.”

 

With registration well over 150 the conference has gained lots of momentum using the social media tools that the conference will explore. As with all BarCamps, the attendees will create the sessions. Currently suggested topics include: Where is the social web going? How will location-aware devices affect the social web? How will platforms and data portability play out?

 

 

SocialDevCamp East - Charting the Next Course will take place Saturday, May 10, 2008 from 8:30am - 10:00pm at the University of Baltimore, Thumel Business Center Building, Baltimore, MD

The event is free to attend. To find out more information go to: http://barcamp.pbwiki.com/SocialDevCampEast
