DCamp update

A little more than two weeks to go and DCamp will be here! More than 85 of the usual and unusual suspects are signed up to attend so far, which is what will make the event a unique experience!

We still need sponsors for food and for a temporary network, so please sign up on the DCamp Sponsors page, if you can help. Alternatively, you can contact me or Rashmi directly for more info.

There’s still time to sign up to attend and present. Don’t delay — sign up today!


BayCHI Panel on Social Search

Rashmi has organized a great line-up for the BayCHI panel on Tuesday evening (April 11): Beyond Search: Social and Personal Ways of Finding Information. The panelists include Neil Hunt from Netflix, David Porter from Live365, Tom Conrad from Pandora, Kevin Rose from Digg, and Joshua Schachter from It should be an excellent panel and discussion for all who attend. Wish I could be there too, but alas, I will be in Rochester. I’ll look forward to the podcast, which should be posted within a few days after the talk here.

join us at DCamp — May 12-13th in Palo Alto!

Hooray! The DCamp wiki opened this week, so the event is moving into full swing now! In the spirit of BarCamp, DCamp is an unconference focusing on the Design and Development of the user experience. The price is right (free, with a suggested donation of $10), so sign up and join in on the fun!

Participants make an unconference successful. All attendees of an unconference participate in one way or another — presenting, volunteering, etc. Do you have something you want to share? Go to the Presenters page to sign up!

Sponsors make an unconference possible. High-speed internet access and food are currently the big needs. If your company is interested in sponsoring DCamp, you can sign up on the Sponsors page.

We’re looking forward to a great event. Hope to see you there! The DCamp wiki will be the main hub for communications, so be sure to check there for all of the latest updates!
