WordCamps are great events. It’s where users of WordPress that are local to the area can all get together in one place to share tips, talk strategy, and share knowledge with each other. However, putting these events together takes time and an incredible amount of hard work, as shown by Steve Bruner’s post on the WCNYC blog: When you have 70+ speakers and volunteers working for gratis, you start out $2,500 in the hole. And when attendees started registering like crazy, it really was a double-edged sword. While registration was beginning to reflect the fruits of our labor, and the hype was building, my little budget spreadsheet was blinking red with every registration. I was laying out money for shirts, bags and food, and the sponsors weren’t showing up For those that are willing to go through all of the trouble of putting a WordCamp together, I salute you!

If you’re looking for a cool way to keep tabs on what’s shaking at WordCamp New York this weekend, check out this site created by DimensionMedia called IWishIWasAtWordCamp.com. The site contains feeds from a few notable Twitter accounts that will be tweeting during the event as well as the important hashtag Twitter widget which goes above and beyond single accounts. Near the center of the site is a collection of photos published to Flickr but some of the photos are from the wrong WordCamp. This should be fixed by only aggregating photos that are using a unique tag such as the event Twitter hashtag. Near the bottom are even more Twitter accounts. The only bad thing about this page is that asides from the hashtag widget at the top, the rest of the page requires refreshing in order to see new information. Hopefully, Dimension has a decent server to put […]

This weekend will be packed with WordCamp goodness starting with WordCamp Phoenix on Friday the 13th and WordCamp New York on Saturday the 14th as well as Sunday the 15th, both of which still have tickets available. However, if you can not make it to WordCamp Phoenix, the great news is that it will be live video streamed in its entirety thanks to their sponsorship with GoDaddy. Simply point your browsers to their Live Video page and the event will be streamed starting at 9AM Mountain time. Also check out the schedule of events in case you only want to tune in during a certain session. Because of a lack of WiFi and bandwidth at WordCamp New York, there will be no live audio or video streams. *UPDATE* Just found out that WordCamp Victoria in Canada is also this weekend.

On Monday, I received an email from the folks putting together WordCamp New York City. This event is shaping up to be the next best thing when compared to WordCamp San Francisco. Due to the large demand for this event and the international, national, local people that will be showing up, WordCamp NYC needed to obtain a bigger venue. Thankfully, they pulled through and the event will be taking place at Baruch College of the City University of New York. Blogs@Baruch, a program overseen by the College’s Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute is the largest WordPress project at CUNY. It is built on WordPress MU and enables members of the Baruch academic community to create individual, group or course blogs in just a few clicks. Baruch College is an advocate of WordPress and other open-source technology, making it a perfect fit for WordCampNYC. The end of the email confirms that […]

WordCamp San Francisco was a total hoot! I met up with a bunch of old friends, made a few new ones, had some good food, drank a few brews, hung out with a whole lot of cool people and all the while, I was surrounded by WordPress goodness. Thank you to all the organizers, volunteers and participants! A few bits of interesting statistics and news from WordCamp San Francisco “State of the Word”: WordPress.org downloads were nearly twice as many as last year There are twice as many WordPress.org blogs on the web this as compared to last year Akismet caught just as many spam comments this year as last (count grew very little) There is a Blackberry version of the WordPress management app coming soon, iPhone version will see an upgrade There will be a GPL paid themes page on the WordPress Extend to encourage the business model At some point in the future, […]

WordCamp India is On!. The list of speakers is quite impressive and includes both Matt and Om for various talks including Matt’s famous “State of the Word“. It looks to be a fun and information filled event with quite interesting fare such as SEO, IP rights and other both techie and non-techie topics. As luck would have it, I am going to be traveling though Dubai and India next weekend (days late, dollars short) and will not be able to attend. From the list of sponsors, the list of attendees and the list of speakers, the enthusiasm for blogging and WordPress in India is not lost on me. If you have not checked out the Delhi Bloggers Group or one of the many other blogging groups and partnerships mentioned and you are an Indian blogger, you might be missing out. I am hopeful that the turnout will be fantastic and […]
