WhereCampPDX is a free unconference focusing on all things geographical. This informal meeting of minds welcomes all geo-locative enthusiasts, anyone who asks “where am I” or feels the need to “know their place”.
An unconference is a conference planned by the participants, we all convene together, plan sessions, and have break-outs into sessions. This gives everybody an opportunity to bring to the table the things that interest them the most and lets us talk about new topics that are still new and exploratory. Part of what is important to hearing new voices and getting new ideas is lowering barriers to participation – this event is free and it is driven by the participants.
Unconference sessions run from 9am to 6pm on Saturday. Please add yourself as an attendee and suggest session ideas on the wiki.
WhereCamp PDX runs all weekend: we're also having a Friday night opening party and Sunday game day. Check http://www.wherecamppdx.org/specifics/ for details as they're announced.
