James Sherrett, one of the organizers of BarCampVancouver 2007 has conveniently thrown together allllll the deets you may want or need prior to this Friday. Here is the cut and paste version 🙂

Registry and Attendance
We’re oversubscribed (yay!), which means that some people who want to come won’t be able to come (boo!). So please, if you’re in the first 120, check your dates and availability. Are you sure you’re coming? We want to minimize the wiki squatting. If you’re not sure you’re coming, please strike out your name and post the name of the top person left on the waiting list in your former place. If you’re on the waiting list, are you sure you’re available to come? If not, please cross out your name. If you’re still keen on coming, check back on the list to see if you’ve been added to the first 120.

We don’t mean to be too anal about this. We just want to make sure that all the people that want to be there and can be there do get to be there. And to do that, please help us get the word out to all Barcampers. Blog this message if you can. Forward it on to friends who are interested so people are in the know.



We have printed 120 Barcamp Vancouver 2007 t-shirts to cover our collective nekkidness. They’re fuschia (!) and they’ll be available at the door on a first- come, first-served basis. We’re taking a suggested donation of $20 for each t-shirt, to finance our lavish unconference lifestyle. Any monies left over will be rolled into financing next year’s proceedings.


List of Topics for Sessions – find this on the main page:

One of the suggestions from past Barcamps has been to post a list of potential topics for sessions before the unconference. That way,people can do their homework and get a hint of the sessions available.
