BarCamp is in Session

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.


The third iteration of BarCamp LA is in full effect with a record number of attendee/participants. BarCamp is an ad-hoc un-conference produced, attended and presented by enterprising media/tech/Internet junkies, worker-monkeys, and inquiring civilians as an alternative to the overly-corporate, overpriced mega-conferences that commonly occur at the Convention Center, Loews Hotel, or somewhere-in-the-Bay Area.

Still don't get it? Just come on down, BarCamp is free (thanks to sponsors) and its fun. Day one is winding down but many are expected to hang long into the night (geeking out with DJ's, werewolf and Wiis) and even sleep here at the spacious Little Radio Warehouse. There are four presentation spaces and two breakout areas where sessions thus far have included:

-- Foodies: Classically Trained Cook Chef Joanna answers your culinary questions
-- How to create disruptive content: Make your own online comic book.
-- Fight Back: Know Your Rights in California Moving Violations -- Fight Them & Win!
-- Photography, Galleries, and Administration

We're especially looking forward to PowerPoint karaoke, after dinner, in which 5 volunteers will each take their best shot at presenting a PPT presentation they've never seen before. Audience applause will determine the winner, who (we hope) will already be drunk and make a total fool of themselves. Photos as-it-happens posted here.

Sunday sessions are from 10:30-2:30 and 2:00-5:30. There are still spaces to sign up if you've got something on your mind. Photos of the schedules (as they stand at 5 p.m. Saturday) after the jump.
