It's time again for another BarCamp "unconference" in NYC.

What is BarCamp?
BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to
share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with
discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees.

[excerpt from Noel's blog...]
After two months of toil and heartbreak, I am happy to announce that
we have rescheduled BarCamp NYC v2.0 for 30 September - 1 October
2006. With a bit of irony, we will be hosted by Microsoft in their
posh midtown office! I can't wait to see the cross pollination between
the FOSS Community, Microsoft engineers, and the random acquaintance.
BarCamp NYC promises to be a very interesting weekend!

The BarCamp NYC Planning team chose this weekend to coincide with
Wired NextFest at the Javits Center (wikipedia link). Though I am now
saddened to discover that BarCamp falls on Yom Kippur. UGH!
