PrivacyCampDC 2009

Computers Freedom and Privacy 2009 isn’t over, and yet we are already discussing how to keep the discussions, learning’s, friendships and new ideas alive and vibrant once the conference closes June 4th and everyone returns home.

How can you continue to learn about what it is that you deeply care about?

How can you maintain the new and old friendships that you’ll make during the CFP 2009 conference once we have all returned to our real lives?

Well, if you are in the Washington, D.C. area you are in luck as a group of privacy folks have begun to self organize a BarCamp (unconference) around Privacy and Government Policy:  PrivacyCampDC 2009.

If you are not familiar with the BarCamp model (some of us older folks are familiar with “open space technology”) it does take a little getting used to.  BarCamps are organized by a small group of volunteers, paid for by sponsors (we are looking for more), and then the agenda is set by the attendees on the day of the event.  Seriously.  Really.
