Hello Fellow Queenslanders!
I'm writing to you because I think you might be interested in the concept of BarCamp: an ad-hoc gathering 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.
Organisation for a BarCamp includes finding a few sponsors who will provide a venue, Internet access, food and drink. Barcamps are sometimes 2 days events so most people bring a sleeping bag and stay overnight, the venue provider should be able to cater for this if we decide on this format.
We've started the organisation for BarCampBrisbane, there is similar work going on BarCampMelbourne, BarCampCanberra & BarCampSydney. The event will obviously take place somewhere in Brisbane and we will hopefully synchronise our event with one of the other states and hook up with them in some way during the weekend.
We welcome any questions you might have about this, and encourage you to forward this email to anyone you feel might be interested. For further information, please see the BarCamp wiki pages:
We also now have our own site at http://barcampbrisban... and a mailing list at http://groups.google.... so it's easy to get involved.
