After a lot of effort (mostly from a lot of other very hardworking BarCampers), BarCampNYC 2 is on! The event is happening 9/30 – 10/1. There was a (in my view somewhat justified) grumbling that this is the weekend of Yom Kippur, which essentially is the equivalent for someone who is Jewish of holding the event on Christmas Eve. But at the same time, one has to keep in mind that this is a completely volunteer-driven effort, who have to pull out all the stops to find a suiteable venue and then agree on a reasonable date. Having myself headed up the organization of similar events, I can tell you it’s a mountain of an effort.
