Plan Flickr Camp?

Wouldn’t you love to go to Flickr Camp?

(OK, this is a regular camping… er, campingcamp? picture, from last year in the mountains just south of the Oregon border. But can you imagine Camp Flickr? Indoor WiFi environment included, for show and tell purposes!)

A few months ago some of us who go to the SFlickr Social meetup things (every month, usually the second thursday) talked about doing a photo-related “camp” event.

Then pinhole went to barcamp (look it up on wikipedia if you don’t know about it) … and uploaded a planning image from a session he organized about putting together Flickr Camp. I thought that was pretty exciting.
Now the idea has taken another step towards fruition. If you can help plan or sponsor, please jump in to the wiki Mark started:

What else? You can link to blog entries and network; spread the word and spread the work around, and we’ll have something splendid.


FotO2 rescued and reborn as Foto2.0

You are invited to a party at the Brickhouse in San Francisco, Thursday July 6.

Lots I want to write about recently, but I have been busy with this flickr photo show project.

As you may recall, there was a disturbing adventure last time we hung a show: the Oxygen cafe went out of business the day after our big opening bash, and used the cash from our party to give a week’s pay to the staff. At least we rescued our photos without much hassle!

The community went to work, I got a lot of leads to call, and it came down to a friendly place near the ballpark, on a week when the SF Giants are out of town. Brickhouse Bar and Cafe on Brannan, between 3rd and 4th Streets in S.F. hosts the SF Flickr meetup, opening party and show.

Maps and a place to RSVP (not required, but if you like) are at

Please drop by from 7 to 10 the evening of Thursday July 6 for the party, or any time in July.
