Ritual Roasters: Birthplace of Bar Camp

A hip Mission District cafe has become the unlikely nerve center for a new wave of software innovators, amid signs of a second internet gold rush.

Ritual Coffee Roasters opened just this May, but thanks to free Wi-Fi, French-pressed coffees and gourmet espresso, it has already become a favorite temporary home to some of the best-known Web 2.0 startups.

Ritual’s espresso drinks also fueled the first planning meeting for Bar Camp, an ad-hoc, open-source complement to O’Reilly’s famed Foo Camp.
