REMINDER: If you don’t help plan CyborgCamp tonight then the machines win

REMINDER: If you don’t help plan CyborgCamp tonight then the machines win

As much as we love the camps here in Portland, they don’t plan themselves. Even if they have to do with cyborgs. And that’s why—if you’re interested in the combination of humanity and technology—it would be a good idea for you to make it over to About Us, this evening at 7 PM.

And while you probably won’t get fitted for your Internet brain implant, you will get the chance to meet with some of the creative folks behind CyborgCamp and figure out how you can take part in helping make it a reality in May 2010.

What’s that? You’ve never heard of this CyborgCamp thing? Oh well. It’s pretty cool.

CyborgCamp is an unconference about the future of the relationship between humans and technology. We’ll discuss topics such as social media, design, code, inventions, web 2.0, twitter, the future of communication, cyborg technology, anthropology, psychology, and philosophy.

See? Told you.

And after taking a hiatus of sorts from Portland in 2009, it’s all set to come back in grand fashion in 2010. But not without your help.

Wondering what to expect?

This meeting is everyone’s chance to brainstorm on location ideas, sponsors and speakers. What kinds of topics are of interest to you? How has the idea of Cyborg evolved over the last year? What new kinds of technologies have arrived on the scene?

So if you’ve got a few minutes, take some time to pitch in to help. Because really. If you don’t? You might as well hand the keys over to MakerBot, Roomba, and Skynet.

For more information or to RSVP, see the Upcoming event for the CyborgCamp planning meeting. For more on the camp, itself, visit CyborgCamp or follow @cyborgcamp on Twitter.
