Giovanni Gallucci and I stayed up all night Sunday-Monday an edited together a rough 6 minutes from the 36 hours of tape captured at BarCampAustin II. We posted the video to YouTube, but in our sleep deprived state forgot to post it here; sorry all. Please pass it along to anyone and everyone as we hope it will help promote all things BarCamp. We’ll also be adding sessions, round tables, and other videos at a rate of 2 or 3 a week for the next few weeks. So if there is something that happened and you missed it, you should be able to recapture the moment online in the near future.

And now, you can digg this!

WARNING: The music has 2 fbombs in it so be aware of your listening environment. One is at 05:09-05:08 and the other is at 01:48-01:47


Hey BarCampers,

We wanted to let everyone know that the planing has officially kicked off for BarCampAustinII. The event promise to completely blow away the last BarCampAustin experience with more activities, fun, and people! We promise, this one will be very special! That said, I’d like to ask everyone interested to sign up for BarCampAustinII. Also, If you know any one else that would like to participate, please have them add their names to the wiki. Finally, If you (or someone you know) is interested in helping organize the event, please send mail to:

We’re looking forward to seeing all of you at the event,

whurley, erica, asurasunil, and the BarCampAustin Gang

The review of Barcamp Austin from Sun CTO Simon Phipps:

The contrast between the two events was striking. SXSWi is impersonal, controlling, somewhat sterile by comparison with the energy of BarCamp. I can’t help thinking that Unconference is the model more and more of us will adopt for the transfer of knowledge.

With all respect to SXSW, I can’t help but think that he’s right.
