Please register for WhereCampSF with your email; obfuscated if you wish. This will help us follow-up and get a sense of the number of attendees. (Since this is a no-charge event we're going to have a bit more work on our end to make sure that we get a good sense of who is going to be here and quantity of food and t-shirts and the like to bring.)


Note that the password to edit this page is 'where'.


We can easily handle 150+ people; even 200. We're going to see a larger crowd Saturday, possibly growing quite a bit in the evening, and tapering off somewhat Sunday. Please however do try to come by 9 am if possible so that you can share breakfast (which we paid for!), submit sessions that you would like to present, and so that you can participate more fully.


Register by adding your name, website and interests to the page. We'd love to get people's photos too, so there is a photo wall at the end of the page so we can all recognize everyone. Please try to use the same format -- if you want to fill in more info about yourself, wrap your name in [] and fill in that page.
