At last… New Zealand’s own THATCamp!

Maybe you’ve been to one… perhaps you’ve heard about them… Quite possibly, you’re wondering what IS a THATCamp? Either way, you’re in the right place!

THATCamp Wellington is a user-generated/crowdsourced/everyone in boots n all and no one on the bench ‘unconference’.

It’s inspired by the original THATCamp, organised by the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, and is one of a growing number of regional THATCamps popping up around the world.

If you’re passionate about the humanities and technology, and want to learn/share/hack/build/brainstorm/discover with like-minded adventurers, THATCamp Wellington 2012 has your name on it. And if that passion needs a little nudge in one direction or the other, this might just be the ticket.

If you’d like to be part of New Zealand’s very first THATCamp at Victoria University of Wellington on Thursday 22 November, we encourage you to follow the blog and THATCamp Wellington on Twitter for updates. The more questions, comments, and ideas shared the merrier, so don’t be shy – and spread the word!
