Tara Hunt is organizing Bar Camp, which is an ” ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees.”
It’s this weekend in Downtown Palo Alto, where one city block will be shut off to let attendees travel from one startup to the next. Ross Mayfield runs SocialText, which is one of the companies that will be hosting, that’s great!There will be a Ustream channel, so if you’re not in the area you can watch it, communicate back, or just learn.
If you want to learn more, check out the BarCamp Block wiki site to get more details.
