Green Camp San Antonio, May 9 2009 , 9 to 4 at the Pearl Stables on the renovated and reused Pearl Brewery grounds will be unlike any conference in San Antonio this year.
In fact the organizers call it an "unconference and a gathering of people to share & learn in an open environment with discussions, demos & interaction." Admission is free but you will need a ticket, which you can get from Eventbrite. Volunteers and donations are also welcome.
When you sign up for your ticket you will be asked for three topics you most want discussed at Green Camp. You will also be asked what presentations you could make. It isn't a top down event. The agenda is determined on the day of the event.
The Green Camp unconference is modeled on PodCamp which focuses on new media and BarCamp which focused originally on web applications but whose concept has been applied to explorations of public transit, health care and political organizing. PodCamp San Antonio Dos took place in May of 2008.
