Monthly Archives: August 2006

In June, Jean-Jacques and I decided to bring the BarCamp phenomenon to Montreal. (I will expand on the reasons why in a later post.)

With 24 pre-registrants as of today, I’m now convinced that BarCampMontreal has enough demand. I’ve set the date for Saturday October 21st, 2006, and I will know tomorrow if the location I have in mind will be available.

In the meantime, anybody who is interested in helping (with specific ideas), please send me a note at

Quick list of things to do:

  • Finalize location
  • Work on the logo
  • Translate everything to French
  • Email everybody on the pre-registration list

More tomorrow!
