The Future As Seen By Me In 2010

Well looky here, things one has scanned in eh. (ignore the photo, that's some guy that made some accounting software, not sure what became of him ;) MIKE RIVERSDALE is fuming. The expensive headphones he bought in Sydney three weeks ago have just died. His first reaction is not to randomly spill expletives into his coffee, but to use his iPhone to vent his frustration to his Twitter con- tacts, under the moniker Miramar Mike. "I will also put, 'What should I do?' It's a conversation. I'm reaching out to the people following me." The council predicts hand-held digital devices such as smartphones will rule the world in 2040.

Wellington barcamp - 2 for 1 deal; Internet Identity PLUS Mobile



The fine folk organising the Internet Identity barcamp and the Mobile barcamp have taken my suggestion on-board of combining them into one and now we have a cracking potential for cross pollination of ideas.

But don't think that because you're into shiny hand-held gadgets you can't go because you'll have to listen to boring ID stuff - OR - because you want to understand more about Identity but don't think whizzo tools for mobile phones is your thing you shouldn't go.

The two Barcamps are at the same place.
They will be using the same facilities.
They will be sharing pizza and beer (probably)

They WILL NOT be forcing one voice on another.

But most of all, remember that Barcamps are about participation and with you, me, everyone designing the conference schedule. Sign-up (ID / Mobile), get along and make the two days whatever you want it to be!

The details:
  • What: Internet Identity barcamp + Mobile barcamp
  • When:
    • Friday 25th - 1:00pm - 4:00pm
      Overview presentations and session planning plus drinks at a local pub after.
    • Saturday 26th - 9:30am - 6:00pm
      Open Sessions.
  • Where: State Services Commission, 100 Molesworth Street , Wellington

Oh, and don't forget that Ludwig is well on the way to filling up the Auckland Barcamp 2 (12th July). Get in while there are still places ... especially if you're of the female persuasion as it seems to be all guy geeks at the mo', go Auckland girl geeks!!!
