Pics from BarCamp Austin 4


As I mentioned in my last entry, yesterday I hit SXSWi.   When the show floor closed, I moseyed over 311E 5th St. to experience the wild and wackiness that is BarCamp Austin.  To accompany my video from the event, here are some stills.  Enjoy…

What’s in a Name

If you’re not familiar with BarCamp, contrary to what you may think, it has nothing to do with libations:

The name “BarCamp” is a playful allusion to the event’s origins, with reference to the hacker slang term, foobar: BarCamp arose as a spin-off of Foo Camp, an annual invitation-only participant driven conference hosted by open source publishing luminary Tim O’ReillyWikipedia

BarCamps started in 2005 and they follow the un-conference format where topics are posted the morning of the event.  Yesterday’s BarCamp was Austin’s 4th and masterfully arranged by Whurley and Sara Dornsife.

Update:  An inside look into organizing BarCampAustin and how they leveraged the cloud.

The presure finally gets to organizers Sara Dornsife and William Hurley and they snap like cheap toothpicks.
