There is also IndieWebCamp 2012, 2012-06-30...2012-07-01 in Portland, OR, USA.


IndieWebCamp was founded this past June by a few attendees of the first Federated Social Web Summit in Portland in 2010 plus a few more as a kind of fork with a few slightly different focuses/priorities. In short:

1. Independence 1st, federation 2nd.
2. Public/syndication 1st, private/groups 2nd.
3. Thinker creators 1st, talkers 2nd.
4. Self-hosted dogfooding implementations 1st, whitepapers/specs 2nd.

If those priorities resonate with you, consider signing up to participate:

P.S. To be clear, the IndieWebCamp community are big fans of federation, supporting private/group comms use-cases, discussions, and standards. The difference is in approach, and what focus/prioritization will best accelerate progress towards all these goals.
