Barcamp Hong Kong - 15th December 2007

Hong Kong's first BarCamp is this Saturday!

BarCamp is an international network of user generated conferences - open, participatory workshop events where the content is provided by you!

Meet with people from all walks of life with one thing in common - a passion for how technology changes lives. We are expecting start-ups, students, artists, designers, bloggers, programmers, lobbyists, privacy lawyers, gamers and digital media professionals. Be sure to come with an inquisitive mind and at least a few thoughts to share! It is an open agenda and the only rules are below (thanks to an article on unconferences in Businessweek).

Yahoo! Hong Kong will be hosting BarCamp in their offices on 27th Floor, Sunning Plaza, Causeway Bay. They are generously providing 4 conference rooms and a lounge area. Sessions kick off at 10:00 a.m., break for lunch from noon to 1:00 p.m. (food sponsored by Outblaze, drinks by Drinkazine) and then continue from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. That gives a total of 48 available speaking slots.

Break the ice the night before with other BarCampers at our Friday Night Mixer, held at
Why Club in Tsim Sha Tsui (see map) from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The first round of drinks is kindly sponsored by Zendesk.

Book your speaking slot that evening with the latest conference organising software, post-it labels!.

Dr. Steve set up a group on Flickr to share photos of the event. Victor Isaac Cheung has introduced the event on CNET Asia and the local Hong Kong blogosphere has already started to make noise, with postings from Aaron Farr, Ben Lau (Chinese), Sidekick (English), Sidekick (Chinese), Hong Kong Phooey, Drinkazine (Chinese) and 852signal.
