Geekiness for one and all this week in San Francisco

OK everyone, it's time to get your Web 2.0 geekiness on this week, as the events are stacked up, just like pancakes on a Sunday morning. (This coming week we have Supernova, Bloggercon and BarCamp alone.)

And I join Tara Hunt in wanting to see girl geeks out in force this coming week at BarCamp, which come to think of it, is the only one still open to all-comers.

What is BarCamp?

The brief 'About' is:
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 attendees.

The longer "Rules" of BarCamp can be found here.

And yes, I believe there is actual camping going on for those who want to so indulge. Given it's being held at Microsoft's San Francisco offices I don't think it actually qualifies as roughing it, but sleeping bagging will be done by one and all. Tara promises a women's only sleeping bag area for those who prefer it, as well.

Look, stats show that women have raced ahead of men in every category as Internet users. So if Web 2.0 is really about the users (and not just who can be the geekiest of developers, as I sometimes suspect) then let's show up and rock BarCamp!

I'll be there Saturday after Bloggercon for sure...who's with me?

Thanks Elisa!

I'm crossing my fingers. I envision a room that is special for just us women. We can sneak in all of the good snacks and tell ghost stories until late. ;)
