A free unconference during the weekend of June 3-4 at Monster Worldwide in Maynard, Massachusetts, BarCamp encourages collaboration, networking, and sharing. All registrants must participate–perhaps by making a formal presentation, leading a discussion, giving a five minute talk, demoing something, hacking, or doing something completely different.
Some of the participants are hoping for sessions on tagging and other topics we librarians could address.
I’ve already signed up and will give some kind of presentation, probably about blogs, XML feeds, and/or wikis or why software developers, programmers, and other techies should work with information professionals of our ilk.
If you’re interested in getting involved, simply register for the conference.
If you would like to collaborate with me on a presentation, please let me know.
Not able to go to Maynard? BarCamps happen in many cities. Perhaps there’s one near you.
