What time is it? It’s THATCamp time!

All year has been THATCamp time, seems like, but we’re now talking about that THATCamp, which will take place

June 3-5, 2011
Center for History and New Media, Fairfax, VA

We’ve instituted some changes this year:

  • THATCamp will be larger: we’re planning on having about 125 people who do all kinds of work related to the humanities and technology;
  • THATCamp will be truly open to all: instead of having an application process, we’ll be accepting all registrations up to 125 people until April 22;
  • THATCamp will have a BootCamp: the unconference will happen as usual on the weekend over a day and a half, but the Friday beforehand will be devoted to a series of workshops dedicated to improving technical skills; and
  • THATCamp is planning on at least two virtual sessions in which we get to talk to campers at THATCamp Liberal Arts Colleges and to Jon Voss about the outcome of his Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives, and Museums Summit.

Needless to say, we’re psyched. See you there.

    Woo-hoo! Looking forward to June! I’d like to attend Friday’s Bootcamp in addition to Saturday and Sunday’s THATCamp. However, when I attempt to reserve 3 nights at the Mason Inn (Thursday, Friday, Saturday), I get an error message telling me that my check-in date is “out of the available date range for this event.” Is it possible to expand the available date range to include Thursday night? That would be very helpful. Thanks!

    Hey George — we did reserve blocks for all those nights, but it could be that Thursday has “sold” out, because we only reserved something like 25 rooms. I bet we can get more: will try. Woo hoo indeed!!
