So it is upon us… in a very short amount of time, BarCampEarth will commence, with simultaneous events happening around the world (with many more coming in September!). Taking part this weekend:

Whoa how far and wide our community has grown in a year. Believe it or not, I have a draft saved in my blog from August 24, 2005 titled “Bar Camp Worldwide”. I got as far as linking to an image and writing this line:

So it’s been suggested that Bar Camp spread outside of Palo Alto. In fact, it’s been suggested that it spread far and wide, from the West to the East to across the pond.

How prescient is that?

And now we even have a theme song (thanks Derek!).

Well there you have it. Forty some-odd camps later and it’s come full circle.

So if you happen to be in the Bay Area, you know where you’ll be this weekend:


Todd Davies has put together a tremendous time, starting off with a BBQ today at 6pm. I expect to see you there!

P.S. Shirts will be for sale soon soon! Thanks Miles!
