BarCamp Baltics 2008

Idea and influence of BarCamp is spreading rapidly and, inspired from Kiev BlogCamp 2007 event, 8 activists from Latvia will organize BarCamp conference/workshop in Riga. Camp is dedicated to exchange ideas and experience about blogging, social networking, Web 2.0 and other ways of new media and personal expression.

How I said before the BarCamp Baltics will take place in Riga from 8ht to 10th February 2008. About 300 people from Baltics and other countries will participate and I think it will be great impulse for all region.
