Wireless Logistics – Please Read!

Hello all –

We’ve run into a slight kink with the wireless access at the conference site – we’ll need to get all your mailing addresses (the kind where you get actual snail mail) in order to get you set up.  Please reply with your full address (home or work is fine) as soon as you can to your faithful planning committee (and don’t worry, this address won’t appear anywhere).

Thanks for your patience – we look forward to seeing you all soon!


THATCamp Acceptances

Good news!

Acceptance emails have gone out and we look forward to seeing such an interesting and diverse group in Austin on August 11th.

Your email will contain instructions for signing up to post to this blog, so get registered and start posting your session and collaboration ideas. As always, if you have any questions at all, feel free to ask.

Deadlines Approaching

Many thanks for the fantastic applications we’ve received so far – we should have many interesting sessions taking place at THATCamp Austin. Please do continue to submit applications if you’d like to attend – and remember that active participants need not be ‘presenters’ per se – there is plenty of scope for collaboration and discussion, so you can send us a topic you’d like to talk about with other campers.

The cutoff date for applicants who would like a t-shirt is July 31st.  If you’d like to take your chances on the apparel front, August 8th is the absolute final day to get your applications in.  Beginning August 1st, attendees will be sent details on how to post to this blog so that session ideas can take root before everyone arrives in Austin.

Thank you for your interest thus far – and feel free to ask any questions!

THATCamp Austin 2009 – Welcome!

THATCamp Austin is a user-generated “unconference” to be held in Austin, TX, on August 11, 2009. More details are available here, and applications are now being accepted. Just include your name, your email, your Twitter handle, what you would like to present or discuss and we’ll take it from there – you can see more details here.

Whether you are in town for SAA or a local with an interest in digital humanities (since this is ‘the humanities and technology camp,’ after all), we hope to see you at Mezes Hall on the University of Texas, Austin campus!

Please visit the open thread to kick off discussions or to post any questions.
