BarCampEarth (formerly BarCampWorldwide) is a simultaneous compendium of
Barcamps around the world to commemorate the anniversary of the first-ever
BarCamp. This year's event will take place Aug 17-19 around the world.
In Silicon Valley, the local event is BarCampBlock in Palo Alto, on August
18-19, 10 am to 4 pm. Although the details are still being finalized, the
goal for this year is to have a multi-office party starting at
SocialText's offices, then at nearby neighbors like Facebook, iMeem, IDEO,
Edgeio, and so on. SocialText is at 655 High Street, in Palo Alto.
Many of the local organizations affiliated with BayDUX are promoting this
event with their members: BayCHI, IxDA, UPA, BACHFES and STC are already
onboard. If there is a strong turnout from the user experience community,
we can pickup where we left off establishing common ground between
developers and designers at DCamp in May of last year.
