Camp-camp: Dave Winer has an idea called Hypercamp. It’s sort of an open-source newsroom, press conference. Anyone who wants to blog (or, report) it is invited. Anyone who has something to announce can come pitch it. And there is food.
You don’t have to be a geek, just a blogger. Bring your laptop. A long table, lots of connectivity, soft drinks, fast food, and get this — if you have a story you want to tell, a product you want to announce, an idea you want to pitch, at each end of the room there are presentation stations, with 15 chairs in front, a podium and projector. You sign up to brief. Any blogger who wants to listen can, or not; their choice.
See you there.
