BarCamp Is Coming To Memphis

30 08 2008

To all my Memphis pals, I can’t recommend BarCamp enough as I went to the one in Nashville last year. It’s a wonderful free exchange of ideas about new technology, blogging, social media networking and a good way to make new friends and contacts.

It’s coming to your town on Nov. 8.

Check into it here and it is also on Twitter with timely updates about the event.

Love the logo.

Beauty beneath the surface and in the details.

If I were you, I’d get over there quickly.
