Heads up, there's a new WhereCamp in town!


WhereCamp Boston
October 28th - 30th
Microsoft NERD Center
Cambridge, MA

What is a WhereCamp? A WhereCamp is a volunteer-created unconference for
anyone interested in geography and technology. An unconference is an event
planned by the participants through an online wiki and on the spot. The
event is open to anyone, but you don’t just attend a WhereCamp — you can
host or participate in discussions, demo your projects, or join another
cooperative event. WhereCamp topics include: GIS, web mapping, technology,
marketing, startups, development, social media, gadgets, communities,
design, hardware hacking, entrepreneurship, open source software, mobile
computing, social software, and much, much more!

WhereCamp Boston starts with Spatial Startups at Dogpatch Labs on Friday
evening. Prior to any sessions, we welcome you to come socialize with
entrepreneurs from the Boston area startup community. This is an informal
event – no schedule to speak of, but there will be a classroom available for
demos if the need arises.

WhereCamp Boston showcases a selection of keynote speakers on Saturday and
Sunday, interspersed among community-organized sessions. The keynote
speakers for WhereCamp Boston are:

   - Andres Ferrate, Geo Developer Relations Manager, Google
   - Tom MacWright, Mapbox Developer, Development Seed
   - Jeff Warren, Co-founder and Research Director, Public Laboratory for
   Open Technology and Science

Community organized sessions are the bulk of the unconference, and are
created by participants like you. Community organized sessions are governed
by the “law of two feet” – find a session that you like, and feel free to
explore the other sessions throughout the weekend. There is a WhereCamp
Boston wiki at http://wiki.wherecampboston.com/ which contains session ideas
and more.

We hope to see you there!
