Umair Haque is trying to get a London 2.0 group going.
Maybe DC 2.0 and the groups in other cities that are NOT San Francisco – like Toronto and NY – could affiliate somehow. For example, we are planning a 2 day event in the Fall – supposed to have write up in hand in a few weeks – where day 1 is a camp-like event (the Camp) and day 2 (the Summit) is a more or less traditional conference. The top four talks from the DC Camp – voted by the campers – will form a session in the Summit, and the one voted by the room as the best will receive a prize. Well, the prixe might be an all expense paid trip to one of the other outlying cities, to present at a Toronto, NY, or London event.
I’d be perfectly happy to share the schematic for the two day event with others, if anyone wants to model something on it.
