If it’s seemed a little quiet around here, it’s because I’ve been helping plan the latest installment of BarCamp in Los Angeles along with Crystal. A lot of hard work has gone into getting this off the ground and I’d love it if y’all could come check it out. If you know me, you probably know what BarCamp is already — but if you don’t let me fill you in a bit. BarCamp is a totally free, ad hoc conference going on both Saturday and Sunday (Nov. 3 & 4) that covers the whole gambit of tech (and even some non-tech stuff) going on in both LA and around the world. There’s a mix of really great people, really awesome (free) food, a keg, a DJ, presentations and other fun stuff planned for the weekend.

For more info on the venue and the plan for the weekend, check out the BarCampLA wiki and feel free to post any questions you might have about going in the comments here if you’re on the fence. Despite the fact that we’re sort of in crunch time right now — and I’m juggling planning this as well as a handful of other things — I’ll do what I can to not leave anything unanswered.

P.S. Father of the GPL, Richard Stallman is apparently gracing us with his presence. That, plus a visit from Dan Kaminsky ought to make this weekend plenty interesting.
