Last year, one of the most fun events I had an opportunity to participate in was BarCampNYC2. It's time to saddle up to the bar again, as BarCamp is back in New York again for BarCampNYC3 on March 15th & 16th! Okay, there's no actual bar to saddle up to. But bring your brain, because you'll need it at BarCamp as you will meet and mingle with some of the brightest people in our area.
BarCamp is an international network of user generated conferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants — often focusing on early-stage web applications, and related open source technologies, social protocols, and open data formats.
From the BarCamp.org website, the basics:
March 15th and 16th, 2008

At the Brooklyn Metrotech Center
