Today, a group of techies took over G.WIZ as part of the weekend event known as BarCamp Sarasota. I had the opportunity to be a part of this special Occupy Sarasota: Techies Take Over G.WIZ event with a twist — not to be confused with any other “occupy” events taking place around town today.
If you missed today, there’s still time to make it tomorrow for the 2nd Day of BarCamp. Here’s where to learn more.
Though it’s still in the early stages of getting organized, I’m thrilled to announce the recent discovery of BarCamp Sarasota! Some old friends along with some friends I’ve not yet been introduced to are responsible for making this happen.
Things have gotten underway with a new home on the web and a Ning group which is all accessible at the BarCamp Sarasota website. Already there’s been an organizational meeting and another one is on the calendar.
So… calling all techies, bloggers, social media types, programmers, eggheads, geeks, propellerheads, etc.
Get over there and check out what’s going on… then get involved!
Then perhaps if there are enough WordPress users around the Sarasota area, we can manage to put together a WordCamp too!
(With apologies to all of my Geek friends for the photo… I’d hate to be accused of trafficking in stereotypes! Especially when we’re planning the takeover of the world! Oh… and… for the record, that is NOT a picture of me… from any point in my life!)
