Over the past several months I've fielded many questions about when and
where the next City Camp will happen. City Camp
DC<http://barcamp.pbworks.com/CityCampDC>already happened. As a
result of those questions - and some convincing by a
handful of you - I've started thinking seriously about the answer(s).
In a nutshell, I'm thinking about a City Camp "world tour" starting in 2010
and continuing through 2011. I've been in contact with potential local
partners in Philadelphia, London, and Edmonton. Additionally, I've be asked
about feasibility of conducting City Camps in developing nations: Africa,
India, Indonesia. The Code for America cities make sense, too.
Ultimately it will take committed, local partners to determine where City
Camp World Tour (CCWT) will land. I'll need help finding facilities,
caterers, sponsors, and most importantly: local government participants.
So, I'm appealing to you all today for help finding those local partners.
Based on highly scientific research I'm most interested in these cities:
Johannesburg, South Africa
St. Petersburg, Russia
Auckland or Wellington, New Zealand
Here's a map view:
But I'm open to working on a City Camp wherever I can find a local partner.
Please contact me directly ff you are interested in becoming a local
partner and are confident that you can handle the responsibility. Please
also share this with your other networks.
