Bar Camp meets Fight Club … down under?

Tequp CoasterIf it is your first night at tequp, you have to talk.

And them’s the rules, except unlike Fight Club, but more like Bar Camp, you can talk about it after the fact. And judging from the description, I’d say it inherited a lot from Bar Camp:

tequp is a new collective focussing on innovative software and internet development. it is a passionate, informal and constructive meet. the main aim is not to share technological solutions, (although that is certainly an option) but to get to know locals doing cool stuff and share experiences of doing business.

started in melbourne, australia, it is hoped other cities join in on the tequp concept.

But here’s the nutty thing: according to my buddy Blake Burris (and father of this weekend‘s CocoaDevHouse), Cris Pearson, the mastermind behind the meet and developer of Comic Life, had never heard of Bar Camp before.

No, really!

Can you believe it?! Man, this whole accelerating serendipity thing is really starting to catch on.
