Eine neue Form selbstorganisierten Lernens entwickelt sich:

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.

Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join.

When you come, be prepared to share with barcampers. When you leave, be prepared to share it with the world.

Eine ausführliche Beschreibung (auch der Entstehungsgeschichte) findet sich in der englischsprachigen WikiPedia:

Die Leitlinien erinnern an OpenSpace:


Attendees must give a demo, a session, or help with one, or otherwise volunteer / contribute in some way to support the event. All presentations are scheduled the day they happen. Prepare in advance, but come early to get a slot on the wall. The people present at the event will select the demos or presentations they want to see.

Presenters are responsible for making sure that notes/slides/audio/video of their presentations are published on the web for the benefit of all and those who can’t be present.

The Rules of Bar Camp.

  • 1st Rule: You do talk about Bar Camp.

  • 2nd Rule: You do blog about Bar Camp.

  • 3rd Rule: If you want to present, you must write your topic and name in a presentation slot.

  • 4th Rule: Only three word intros.

  • 5th Rule: As many presentations at a time as facilities allow for.

  • 6th Rule: No pre-scheduled presentations, no tourists.

  • 7th Rule: Presentations will go on as long as they have to or until they run into another presentation slot.

  • 8th Rule: If this is your first time at BarCamp, you HAVE to present. (Ok, you don't really HAVE to, but try to find someone to present with, or at least ask questions and be an interactive participant.)

Neue Seiten im Kontext

Donnerstag, 18. September 2008

Nach einem BlogEintrag von Lion Kimbro enstand in Seattle ein Ort, wo sich Menschen regelmäßig treffen, um gemeinschaftlich zu tun.

Mittlerweile scheint dieses Modell Nachahmer zu finden.

A Saturday House is a weekly gathering of several people who meet and do ... whatever they want!

People work on projects, people talk about ideas, people conspire and hatch plans, and people play games with each other. It's been called "BarCamp every Saturday," though it's a bit smaller than BarCamp.

Why ?

Because we're tired of emailing each other.

Because while it's easy to find stuff to read on the web, it's still too difficult to just talk with people on the web.

We want "Intelligence on Tap." And we've found it

We've found that it works.

Our Goals and Vision

Our first principle is freedom: There are no required activities.
