BarCampLA-5 – Save the date and sign up to help!

Calling all LA BarCampers! We’re at it again.

Date: March 1-2, 2008
Location: TBD
Calendar: Upcoming, Facebook

If you’d like to get involved (and we’d love to have you), we are looking to fill the following positions for this upcoming camp:

  • Food Czar
  • T-Shirt Master
  • Wi-fi Guru
  • Minister of Information

Planning Meeting!

We are holding a planning meeting this thursday at Canter’s on Fairfax at 8:30pm. If you’re planning on attending, please drop us a line at help (at) barcampla ~dot~ org (and sign up on Upcoming) so we know how many to expect. We have only six weeks to plan here, so we really need your help. Come and get involved, it’s an awesome crew to work with — and with your help things can only manage to even get more awesome!


If you or your company is interested in sponsoring (and we keep our levels low so almost anyone can afford to sponsor), check out our sponsor information page at or drop us a line at sponsors (at) barcampla ~dot~org.


We all love Little Radio Warehouse, and they’ve been great to us, but we’ve grown quite a bit this year, so we’re exploring other options for venues. We really want free parking, a more complete kitchen, and more *ahem* facilities. We expect up to 300 people for this event, so if you have suggestions for venues in Los Angeles, please comment here or send us an email to help (at) barcampla ~dot~org.


Blog Badges and other publicity items are coming soon, but please help us spread the word early and sign-up as soon as possible so we can get an accurate count before ordering food and shirts. We will be closing down registration about a week before the event this time.

Hope to see you there!

Reminder – Events Next Week

Just a friendly reminder about two great events coming up next week.

  • LA Geek Dinner: Blind Date w/ Dorkbot is happening on Tuesday at Machine Project. RSVPs are closed for this event, so if you have RSVP’d, be sure to attend (or let us know you’re not coming, so someone else can!).
  • Twiistup 3 is happening on Wednesday at the Air Conditioned Supper Club in Venice. Tickets are Sold Out for this event, but you can still put your name on the waiting list or donate to (which you should just do anyhow) for a chance to win tickets. Check here for more info

See you there!

Also, we’re starting to gear up for BarCampLA-5 (Five? Seriously?) very soon, so look for more info this week on how you can get involved.
