BarCamp Sacramento today

I’m at BarCamp Sacramento today. There’s a great crowd and BrickaBracka’s space is fantastic. About half the presentations are good barcamp presentations, but the other half are basically just 30 minute product pitches for local companies. Some interesting companies and products, to be sure, but sitting through product pitches is not what BarCamp is about. The entire event is in one big room, making the law of two feet pretty much impossible to follow.

I kicked things off this morning with a presentation on home coffee roasting, as you can see from the fantastic photo above by Jerad Hill.

My son came with me this morning before heading out to a friend’s birthday party. He says most of the presentations were over his head, but it was nice to get him started in the open community culture.

Somehow Adam, I never got notified of there being a barcamp Sacramento this year. Am I still on your mailing list?
