But, T-shirts have to be ordered by Tuesday, September 21st, 2010… so we can’t get you on the T-shirt unless we know by NOON Tuesday.

However, since we are a creative bunch, we are constantly dreaming up new ways for our sponsors to promote their companies to rebarcamp attendees, without making it sound like a NASCAR Trophy ceremony (“The #2 Miller Lite, FaceBook, Twitter Dodge ran exceptionally well today.  the Goodyear tires were sticking like Gorilla Glue.  The Foursquare, SVNGR crew was incredibly fast in the pits, too.  I’d love to thank my sponsors, PayPal and EventBrite, as well as WordPessfor helping to field this great car” – take a big swig of Social Kool-Aid)… Read more

The people that show up…

But we have a question…

What do YOU think would make rebarcampAtlanta even cooler?

Viper BlizzaksHave you been to a rebarcamp before?  What made it a great event or could have made it a better event?  If you haven’t been to a rebarcamp event before, what are your expectations?

We’re wanting to hear from you.  Lane, Ken, Patty, Thom, Tonya and Randy all want to make this the best rebarcamp ever… we already know it will be the best one in Atlanta so far (it’s the first, so it is a lock).

Let us know what you think…

[note from Lane:  I just thought the picture was a great combination of ‘Hot’ and ‘Cool’… ]

Let’s talk about Al…

Angela is a friend of mine.  She was one of my older son’s pre-K teachers, and he has visited her home to play with her sons.  She is a warm and caring person, as teachers usually are, and has three wonderful sons.

Al Real, 2007

Al, 2007

Her middle son, Alfred (everyone calls him Al), was involved in a terrible accident while playing with a friend back on June 7th.  The result was that he received 3rd degree burns over 80% of his body. As a parent, that is one of my worst nightmares.  Having your 8 year old son seriously injured and on the verge of death, with permanent scaring being the best case scenario, can only be described as devastating.

Gwinnett Fire Department Station 2 responded to the 911 call, and Al was rushed to Grady’s Burn Unit.  Widely regarded as one of the best trauma units in the Southeast, his injuries were more than they could handle.  He had to be flown to Cincinnati to the Shiner’s Childrens’ Burn Unit, which is one of the best pediatric burn centers in the world.

Generally, rebarcamps follow a fairly predictable pattern… but that is the ONLY thing that is predictable about them.  But here is a preliminary schedule…  This is VERY subject to change as the event draws near, and we will certainly have a final schedule available at the event.

8:45-9:30 – Registration Check-In/Social – As everyone arrives, there is a chance to catch up with folks while getting ready for everything to get cranking… Read more

What is an ‘Old Skool’ rebarcamp?

August 8, 2010 by

That is a very fair question.  The whole concept of rebarcamp is only 2 years old, born in July,2008 in San Francisco… how can we go ‘Old Skool’ with a concept that is barely old enough to walk?

I love going to seminars, Continuing Education classes, events like NAR conventions and conferences like REtechSouth.  They can be fantastic learning opportunities.  But they all share one key feature… the presenter gives information to the audience.  It is largely a one-way street of information.  And that is fine.  When the information is close to what we need, we can take a lot away from it that we can apply to our own businesses.

rebarcamp Atlanta – October 1st, 2010

August 6, 2010 by

The date is set.  Add it to your calendar, get your tickets and we’ll see you there.  Look for more information VERY soon.

The event will run from approximately 9:00am until 5:00pm.  We are currently planning for 5 or 6 break-out periods… and there will be a LOT of available session slots.

We are going ‘old skool’ with our break-out philosophy.  We will be encouraging a lot of round table discussions and smaller groups.  We feel this will allow individual participants to have more opportunity to be involved, rather than just hear a presentation.  The break-out rooms will be smaller than some other camps, but there will be more rooms available.  We are also going to try to have areas with a specific theme (like a FaceBook room or WordPress room).  We will be discouraging PowerPoint presentations and sales messages.
