If you are passionate about innovation in banking, credit unions, social lending, or finance, we invite you to participate in BarCampBankSeattle.

What is a BarCamp & BarCampBank?

BarCamps are part of an international network of “unconferences“. They are open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants. Many focus on early-stage web applications, and related open source technologies and social protocols. The name is a playful allusion to its origins, with reference to the hacker slang term “Foo Bar“. The BarCamp movement arose as a spin-off from Foo Camp, an annual invitation-only unconference hosted by open source publishing leader, Tim O'Reilly.

BarCampBank events are organized internationally to foster innovation in banking, credit unions, and finance. BarCampBankSeattle will be sixth BarCampBank event and the first held in the United States.

I would enjoy discussing the history and impact of early branchless Internet-based banks on today's mainstream banks and credit unions, as well as pre-blog-era message boards such as the MSN Online Banking group (groups.msn.com/onlinebanking).


I'm really looking forward to this. The stuff I usually speak to at conferences will be old news to this group, so I look forward to learning from everybody.


BarCamps are almost always free (in my experience)


$35 goes to defray the cost of food.
