Social Graph Foo Camp

(wiki password is c4mp)

February 1-3, 2008

O'Reilly's Campus in Sebastopol, CA (driving directions)

 

We've invited about 70 Friends Of O'Reilly (aka Foo), people who're doing interesting works around social networking, the social graph, and technologies for data portability. We'll have some planned activities, but much of the agenda will be determined by you. We'll provide space, electricity, a wireless network, and a wiki. You bring your ideas, enthusiasms, and projects. We all get to know each other better, and hopefully come up with some cool ideas about how to change the world.

 

Like past FooCamps which O'Reilly organized, a Foo Camp is as good as participants make it. Be prepared to lead or participate in a session, ask interesting questions, show off what you're working on, and generally leave your mark on the weekend. It's a little like Burning Man in that there are no spectators, only participants (much less dust, however). People sometimes ask "what can I do to be invited back" and your best bet is to make a (positive) impression by engaging and presenting.

 

Be Prepared to Demo or Speak

 

We'll put the program together on Friday evening at about 7:30pm, so if you want to lead a session, sign up for a slot then. Don't worry if you arrive late, there should be enough sessions to go around. We'll have a variety of spaces–conference rooms and open areas. Several of the rooms have projectors, but we could use more, so if you have one to lend, do bring it along. For more information about past Foo Camps, Tim has posted "Why Foo Camp" and there are tips from past campers.

 

Schedule

The schedule is still being worked out, though plan on arriving Friday afternoon (4ish) and leaving mid-day Sunday.
