Hi list! I hope you find this post of interest and that I don't offend 
anyone by posting this.


For general circulation

BarCampMelbourne 2008 is go!

23rd February 2008 in Melbourne CBD

*** YOU MUST REGISTER IF YOU INTEND TO COME *************************
* If you do not register and turn up we could get a
* little crowded and you might not get any food!
* http://barcampmelbourne.org/

Described as "an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction
from attendees", anyone is welcome to come along for free. Everyone is
asked to participate by giving a presentation or leading or
participating in a discussion, essentially forcing the sharing of ideas
and knowledge. You might like to check out the BarCamp web site for more
general information. Wikipedia's entry on BarCamp might also be of interest.

What to expect?

Turn up for 9am registration and put your name on the list. Talk to
people, network. We'll have a welcome / intro type talk at about 9.30am
and get into the demos, discussions, talks after that.

What to bring?

Anything you might need for yourself. We'll have lunch for everyone, but
you might want to bring your laptop, computers and other tech stuff that
might be cool, interesting, useful in your demo.

NOTE: The organisers are not responsible for your equipment or other
items you bring. You bring them at your own risk.


BarCamp Melbourne 2008 will be held on the 23rd of February at
ThoughtWorks, Level 11, 155 Queen Street, Melbourne, VIC 3000, Australia

Please spread this call for participation

But if you're planning to send it to a list, check the lists this
announcement has already been sent to at:

Any questions?


Events like this aren't usually possible without sponsorship. We'd like
to thanks Firesyde (http://firesyde.com/), SitePoint
(http://sitepoint.com/) and ThoughtWorks (http://thoughtworks.com/) for
their kind support.

On behalf of all the organisers, I look forward to seeing you there!
