WhereCampPDX 2011
Saturday, October 8
10 a.m. – 6 p.m. | FREE | All Ages
@Metro Regional Center, 600 NE Grand Avenue

WhereCampPDX is a free unconference focusing on all things geographical. This informal meeting of minds welcomes all geo-locative enthusiasts, anyone who asks ¬Å“where am I¬Â or feels the need to ¬Å“know their place¬Â.

An unconference is a conference planned by the participants, we all convene together, plan sessions, and have break-outs into sessions. This gives everybody an opportunity to bring to the table the things that interest them the most and lets us talk about new topics that are still new and exploratory. Part of what is important to hearing new voices and getting new ideas is lowering barriers to participation this event is free and it is driven by the participants.
