BarCampOhio and LibraryCampOhio, August 11, 2008

Announcing the BarCampOhio/LibraryCampOhio meeting on Monday, August 11th from 10am to 5:30pm at the OCLC Conference Center in Dublin, OH. Two camp communities! One day! All of the details, include stuff not covered below, are on the event homepage.


What’s planned is a dual-track unconference of business technologists and library technologists. Why? We think there is synergy between these groups:

Library technologists have:

  • Strong roots in all of our communities
  • A couple decades of experience dealing with massive amounts of data
  • Great sensitivity to privacy and identity management on a limited scale

Business technologists have:

  • Around 8 or more years of experience dealing with Web-scale applications and problems
  • Have a get-it-done-NOW need
  • Typically have more marketing experience and/or resources

Registration fee will be about $25 per person. A registration service will be announced soon, but in the meantime you can add your name to the list of interested people towards the bottom of the BarCampOhio wiki page. (PBwiki.com accounts required; the wiki-password/invite-key is “c4mp”.)
