Planning a BarCamp

Fred Stutzman has a written a wonderful post called Advice for Planning a Bar Camp. It contains a lot of excellent info about how to plan an unconference. In this case doing it BarCamp style. The RDU BarCamp is this Saturday July 22. (Congratulations Fred for pulling this off. I’m sure the event will be a huge success!)

This is truly one of the most beautiful things about the Internet and equal access to information. Records of accomplishments and valuable knowledge. From archives of practical knowledge humans have a chance of improving themselves exponentially. With out the ability to archive this info and share it people quickly forget and make the same mistakes over and over. Information that can improve human life should NOT be hidden and made proprietary! Its the openness of these methods of holding unconferences that is allowing them to multiply and improve so quickly. Information wants to be free!
