BarCamp Portland 2008 dates announced

It’s still three months off, but I’m happy to report that BarCamp Portland, our local BarCamp gathering, has announced the dates and location for the 2008 event: May 2-4 at CubeSpace.

Tech + Geek + Culture. The event for the Portland tech community, produced BY the Portland tech community. Interesting topics, cool people, and great networking opportunities. Always free to attend.

BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants.

The name BarCamp was inspired as a complement to FooCamp.

BarCamp Portland is managed by the Legion of Tech (the same great folks behind Ignite Portland). For more information, visit BarCamp Portland. To RSVP, visit the BarCamp Portland on Upcoming.

Additional BarCamp Portland coverage can be found on Dawn Foster’s Fast Wonder blog.

How I’d like to use Twitter for work

Could we be seeing some early thoughts around extending the functionality of Jive Software’s Clearspace?

“As I’ve been using Twitter, I’ve realized that there are some posts I make (or that I’d like to make) that are related to the work I’m currently doing. For example, I’ll post a URL that I’d want the people working on Clearspace 2.0 and our PR Agency to see.”
