BarCamp DC set for August 11th
We're a proud sponsor of BarCamp DC, happening on August 11th at Fleishman-Hillard located at 16th & L. Thanks to the "J" organizers: Justin, Jason, Jesse, our (soon-to-be) own Jackson, and Justin as well as Nick, Peter, Rodney, and Martin. Your efforts are appreciated. The participant list, including several of us from Viget, just surpassed 100 and we're still two weeks away, so it'll be a great (and large) crowd. If you can make it, just add yourself to the list and show up. For those BarCamp newbies out there, you should know that attendance is free, but this isn't your mom's "sit-and-listen" type conference. Attendees are expected to participate by presenting, demoing, or facilitating a group discussion. Being an unconference, the schedule and topics are organized ad-hoc the day of the event. Who should attend? While the topics may be most relevant to web developers, designers, and marketers, I would encourage entrepreneurs, old media professionals, and others to attend as well. As Jason put it, the more diverse the crowd, the better the conversation. Hope to see you there!
