Ryanne Hodson and Jay Dedman put together an awesome video that describes BarCamp — featuring campers Ryan King, Tantek Ã‡elik, Tara Hunt, Enric Teller (who has his own video), Eddie Codel, Nima Dilmaghani and Jay Dedman. Footage was camptured at the recent BarCampSanFrancisco.

I need to write a longer summary of where we’re at and what was decided at the opening meeting, but suffice it to say, we now have a coworking space in San Francisco!
And thanks to all the folks who pitched in moving today! Phew!
So tonight we’re having a kick-off meeting to get things going. We’ll talk about governance, the organization of the space, who’s going to serve as the initial anchors and how the heck we’re going to pay for it. Things should start at 6:30pm and if you can’t make it, no worries, we’ll post a summary on the wiki and mailing list and keep the discussion going beyond tonight’s initial kick-off.
→ Oh, and if you definitely want in, please make sure to add your desired time allotment to the wiki!
We’ve tentatively decided to call our first location (we’re currently scouting for locations of around 3000 sq feet — hint hint!) Teh Space.
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!
So I decided last minute to stage a “metacamp” (maybe Andy’s right but the party goes on). Basically a bunch of us are going to meet up down the hall from the mini Maker Faire at 8pm in the Elizabeth Ballroom area (@ ETech) and talk Bar. Maybe even some Foo. Heh.
Right after that, we’re all gunna head over to Caskhacks to continue the discussion… and get the party going (though of course it’s not quite a party unless Miss Rogue is there… which she will be for this Friday’s Bar Camp Austin!).
