Implementation can occur in SideLab’s case as follows:
Hi All Barcamp is tomorrow! Please make sure you RSVP so we have a good idea of numbers.... so far we have over 100 yes replies. Based on previous numbers, we usual get a peak of about 150% of the RSVPs so we will probably be at our capacity of 150 at some point during the day, As an added incentive to RSVP - we have quite a few prizes to give away on the day. Inspired by Nigel's idea for the JS meetup prize I have made the executive decision to pick the names FROM THE RSVP LIST. So if you haven't RSVPd (or you RSVPd and you aren't there) you will NOT get the free stuff! Our meeting point is the D block covered courtyard next to Artisans and the Labs. We will use this for Morning and Afternoon Tea, Lunch and our speed networking event. The rest of the talks will be in the rooms on the 5th floor of B Block - right next door. We will also probably have some things happening on this floor - but at the moment I haven't planned to have anything there until we find out if there are any exams happening on the same floor. I have setup a barcamp wave at http://j.mp/bcwave with a rough agenda and a place where people can make notes throughout the day. There will be signup sheets for the talks on the wall in the courtyard - we will move them up to L5 once we start. We will put up posters with details on all the QUT maps and also probably some stuff at South Bank Station and on the Goodwill bridge, so look out for the signs showing you the directions. If you are arriving by Train, South Bank is probably your best bet. Go up the Ramp from the station (not the underground exit) and turn left. You should see the Goodwill foot-bridge ahead of you crossing the river to QUT. Once you are over the bridge (watch for cyclists on the bridge - particularly Mr O'Keeffe and Rausch!) just follow your nose to D block - following the signs for the City usually works. There's also plenty of buses and you can also walk through the city from Central and enter QUT via George/Alice St (where Parliament house is). Barcamp starts at 10am with morning tea - but we'll be there from about 9 if anyone wants to come early and help setup, chat and drink coffee with us. I have an area at Greystone at Southbank reserved for after drinks if anyone is interested. They are putting on some free food for us and we have a bartab if you need an extra incentive :-) If you haven't been to a Barcamp before and don't know what to expect. THAT'S COOL! Just come with an open mind and a willingness to contribute in any small way. Remember Barcamp's motto is "No Spectators, only Participants". There are plenty of odd jobs we need helpers for during the day, so if you aren't doing anything, please volunteer. See you tomorrow Steve (@spidie) & Unorganisation team ps. Please feel free to forward to anyone else you know - the quick link for the meetup is http://j.mp/barcampbne and twitter hashtag is #barcampbne.
