There will be a bar camp in Baltimore on Saturday, 20 June 2009 at the University of Baltimore. Bar camps are unconferences — ‘open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants”.
Here’s how the Baltimore Sun described it:
“Organizers have scheduled the event on June 20 at the university’s Thumel Business Center. Following the BarCamp format, the event will have no pre-set agenda. Instead, attendees who show up that morning will determine the day’s program by suggesting and voting on topics. Such events usually attract artists, designers and people who work in technology and the Web. BarCamps got their start in California four years ago, and are now held all over the world.

At last year’s Baltimore BarCamp was focused on social media — see the blog post by UMBC ebiquity alumnus Dr. Harry Chen.
