Spread Bar Camp!

Bar Camp Austin Lotus

As Bar Camp spreads across India, we’re gearing up for a local event that promises to become the premiere tech event in Austin.

Well, maybe eventually (I mean, there’s no point using hyperbole when the event itself will prove its awesomeness) but it’s going to be one helluva time regardless — organized by local folks, for local folks and welcoming all the out of towners who are arriving for SXSW.

Looking forward to seeing y’all there tonight and tomorrow! Come ready to pitch in to make this the camp the one that really sets the bar for all subsequent camps!

Eric Rice gives you an introduction to Second Life so you don’t look like an idiot when chatting up the folks from Linden Labs. And with the aforementioned Mr. Messina in town, there will be a BarCamp. […]
