Announcing BarCamp Diaspora '09.

Hi friends here’s information about a really awesome camp you can attend if you have sometime this summer:-)

On December 22, 2008, 100 plus young Ghanaians met in Accra to exchange ideas on entrepreneurship, innovation and development for a rising Ghana during BarCampGhana '08 with theme: ‘Fueling Ghana’s Technology and Business Renaissance’..

On July 25, 2009 the conversation moves again to Washington, D.C and later to Kumasi and Accra at the latter part of the year for BarCamp Kumasi and BarCamp Accra '09.

You can be part of that conversation by joining my fellow friends at BarCamp Diaspora '09 at the School of Advanced International Studies - Johns Hopkins University.

The theme for BarCamp Diaspora '09 is "Investing our talent where it counts".

BarCamp Diaspora '09 will be an ad-hoc gathering and a day of discussions, demos, dialogue, panels and speakers. Unlike a conference, at a barcamp everyone is both a speaker and a participant. The content is provided by all attendees based on their interests.

BarCamp Diaspora '09 will be the first such event in the United States, focused on bringing together the African diaspora to exchange ideas on doing business in Ghana, West Africa.

Who should attend? Anyone who is interested in using skills, talent, resources to benefit Ghana and the Diaspora. Register today at the BarCamp Diaspora website at a cost of $20.
