Help with BarCampRDU

Just under two weeks to go till BarCampRDU, and we're very busy with preparations. We need your help with a few things:

1) Wireless routers: We need people to bring wireless routers to BarCampRDU. Without them, we won't have internet. If you can bring your wireless router, please add your name to the wiki (we need about 10 more people to do this).

2) Projectors: We have two people bringing projectors (thank you), but we need a few more (3-4) of you to bring your projectors. If you can bring a projector, please add your name to the wiki.

3) Volunteers: We need 10 people to be BarCampRDU volunteers. Volunteers will help during registration, aid in setup, etc. If you'd like to volunteer, please add your name to the wiki.

4) PA System: If someone has a PA system they can bring, that would be great. Please contact me directly if you can help me out with this.

Finally, announcements. The BarCampRDU pre-party will be held August 3 at Tyler's Taproom in Durham. The party will go from 7:30-9:30, and will feature free food, drinks and pool. Come out to mingle and enjoy.

Thank you to everyone who has signed up, to everyone who has helped out, and most importantly, our sponsors who make the day possible.

Sign up for BarCampRDU 2007

I'm happy to announce that signups for BarCampRDU 2007 are now open. To sign up, simply go over to the BarCampRDU wiki ( and add your name and information under the Campers section (

BarCampRDU 2007 will take place August 4, 2007 at Red Hat Headquarters in Raleigh, NC - just like last year. We're fully sponsored (thanks!) and looking forward to a great event.

At this point, I'd like all people who'd like to help with organization of the event to email me - I *really* need help this year, I'm looking for 6-8 fellow organizers to spread the work around.

As a final note, please note that the Wiki may be locked when you attempt to edit it. We ran into this problem last year - if you come back a little later, it will probably be unlocked. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Thanks everyone! I'm looking forward to seeing you at BarCampRDU 2007.
