Bar Camp as an idea for Nerd Girls?

What can we do? Still trying to work out what Nerd Girls could be as a group. Here is a definition of BarCamp that may provide food for thought. Thanks to Scott for this summary.

Subject: What is BarCamp?
For a potential BarCampMadison promotional opportunity I was asked to write up a little "What is BarCamp" to try to describe to someone who has never heard of BarCamp what it is. After I ran it by a fellow BarCampMadison organizer, he suggested that I post it to the BarCamp

So, here it is. Feel free to use it and modify it if it is useful.

What is BarCamp?
BarCamp is a technology oriented un-conference. Picture a conference where everybody participates; with no preset schedule; where discussions occur on-the-fly in an organic manner; where collaboration on esoteric topics is not uncommon.

BarCamp is open to anyone who is interested in participating. Attendees consist of programmers, engineers, managers, students, artists, photographers, and everyone in between. The main tenet of BarCamp is that everyone must participate. Participation options include leading a session, helping clean up trash, helping setup, helping at the registration table, and more.

As diverse as the attendees of a BarCamp, the sessions are just as diverse as they are completely driven by the attendees themselves. An attendee at a BarCamp may find sessions such as learning a new programming language, taking a photo walk, discussing open source
tools, discussing the role of technology in a Utopia or Dystopia, or hack sessions.

Funding for BarCamp is from solicited cash donations from various corporations. Donations from each entity are limited so that each cash donor is equal. Other in-kind donations of supplies, equipment, and food are solicited from corporations and individuals. Time and energy donations from many volunteers are also needed to put on the event.

Most of all, BarCamp is about meeting new people, sharing knowledge and learning new things, and having fun."

Why Nerd Girls?

A good question.
