According to Wikipedia, Barcamp is “…an international network of user generated conferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants — often focusing on early-stage web applications, and related open source technologies, social protocols, and open data formats.”

Read more on the official Barcamp website.

What will BarCamp Philly be like?

BarCamp is an open-format conference where the attendees are the presenters. Our subject matter will be directly tied to what ideas people bring to share with the community. Most of the rooms at UArts are equipped with projectors if participants would like to give a slide presentation. Discussion groups, round tables, Q&A, brainstorming together are also options.

Social Media for Social Good

Social Media Club Philadelphia, PANMA, and Temple University Dept. of Journalism Presents: Social Media for Social Good from Mark Magliocco on Vimeo.

Social media offers organizations an indispensable tool set for a wide variety of philanthropic activities including activism, education, donor and volunteer development, and direct fundraising. Because of its inherently personal and community-based nature, social media provides an ideal canvas to work within, allowing causes to not just communicate, but also to activate and invigorate significant grassroots activity.

On Tuesday, August 25th, we'll have local do-gooders discuss how they utilize social media for their specific causes. We'll have panelists representing the following causes:

Wil has done another outstanding job presenting SEO.


The presentation's focus is on looking at Search Engine Optimization SEO and what matters most TODAY in the algorithms of todays largest search engines. Outside of the basic technical blocking and tackling, how do you succeed online? Build great content? Is that enough? How do you build links in a way that is likely to stay around? What about Google Universal, what happens when 4 of the top 10 rankings are videos, news items, products, local results and blogs? How does influence rankings at Yahoo? This presentation is going to be a crash course on everything that's been influencing search in the last 2 years and educate participants on what to be keeping an eye out for. Did you know that Youtube gets more searches than MSN? Is your search strategy prepared for that? If any of the questions above sound intriguing or new to you, come join Wil Reynolds and the SEER team as they help explain what's new and how to be prepared for the newest trends in search.

VizThinkPhilly Photos

About VizThink VizThink is gathering visual thinkers from all corners of the world to create the first global community dedicated to the use of visualization in all forms of learning and communication.

VizThink was initially conceived by Dave Gray, Chairman of Xplane. A long time proponent of Visual Communication, Dave envisoned the creation of a global community of visual thinkers. In 2006 XPLANE expanded to Europe through a new office in Madrid, Spain. While in Europe Dave became acquainted with Rodolfo Carpintier of Digital Assets Deployment, a business incubator firm in Madrid.

Through their conversations the concept of VizThink was raised and Mr. Carpintier, who has a successful history of building organizations that revolve around community, was enthused by the idea and decided to fund it.

In July of 2007, after about six months of planning, VizThink was launched.

Booth's Corner Farmers Market Bethel PA

Booth's Corner Bethel PA from Mark Magliocco on Vimeo.
History of Booth's Corner

Booth's Corner Farmers Market was founded in the 1930's by a farmer named Earl Phillips. His 14 acre farm, complete with wooden barn and sprawling fields, served as the sale grounds for Amish farmers and other merchants who brought their goods by truck and wagon to the Market during the Great Depression.

Over the years, a series of sheds and outbuildings were added on to the barn to accommodate the growing numbers of merchants offering discounted national brand merchandise and a wide variety of farm fresh produce, poultry and meats.

On Friday nights, thousands of bargain hunters would head for the excitement of the "sale" as the famous auction was known in the early days.

Booth's Corner also attracted some of the country's most famous entertainers. Ed McMahon, Johnny Carson's famous sidekick, was once a colorful pitchman hawking gadgets in the Market midway. While Bill Haley, of Comets fame, was a popular guitar-playing entertainer.

The original market was destroyed by fire in 1973 and replaced by a modern building under the direction of Paul Cohen, whose father Nate, founded the original market.

Today, Booth's Corner Farmers Market upholds the tradition of great values and farm fresh meats and produce that have truly made it a great Delaware Valley landmark.

Speaker Ken Clyne, Agile Coach for Rally Dev on Collective Wisdom != Mediocrity

There seems to be no slowing down the evolution of the information technology industry. As the dot com era disappears into long term memory and we fast approach the physical limits of the silicon wafer, we are witnessing sea change in the way teams build software and collaborate. The widespread success of agile methods confluent with the emergence of social networks has ushered in a new era where collaborative teams are replacing the old plan driven command and control structures. In this presentation, we explore why ceding control is not only key to building a high trust environment, but also why it results in better decisions.

This topic is how a collaborative environment can better drive your organization toward innovation and quality.


Ken Clyne is an Agile Coach with Rally Software where he pursues his passion for helping software organizations of all sizes incrementally adopt Agile practices to shorten their development cycles and collaborate across distributed teams and silos.

Johnny Bilotta, Creative Director

Dioscuri: Relationships between Designers and Developers at IndyHall Labs

Like Castor and Pollux, designers and developers complement each other in mythical ways. Getting some of the talent from both in the same room can make wonderful debate and produce incredibly engaging projects. Indy Hall Labs provides the perfect incubator for these relationships to blossom into killer products.

This discussion is intended to become a Rosetta Stone for both camps. Focus will be on how this relationship is cultivated. Designers will gain insight on interface and branding, communication, and limits of the medium. Developers will get a glimpse into the mind of a visual artist and how, with a bit of art direction, their app can look like a streamlined butterfly!

As one of the most active designers at IndyHall Labs, Johnny works with some of the top developers in Philadelphia. His experience has brought creative direction and graphics, most recently, to RipIt and Multiplex; two consumer apps for Mac. As a designer his services have been enlisted by Seesmic, Nike,, and

When not designing beautiful interfaces and software apps, Johnny can be found alongside Dave Martorana filming the entertaining podcast Two Guys on Beer or teaching classes on Web Design, Photoshop and Illustrator at the University of The Arts.


Howard Blumenthal, CEO, MiND TV

New Ideas for an Old Medium

Public television has a big problem -- each generation finds it less relevant than the one that came before it. In this presentation, Howard Blumenthal will discuss the recent transformation of WYBE, an 18-year-old independent public television station in Philadelphia, into MiND TV, a multi-platform learning channel featuring community-generated content. MiND strives to reduce the public television generation gap by encouraging and empowering anyone to produce digital video programs that will air regularly to a diverse audience on regional broadcast and cable television, as well as online at and other media-sharing sites. Blumenthal will also discuss the the impact of new technologies on the television industry, and the unique role small innovators often play to lead the way for positive change in any industry.

In 2006, Howard Blumenthal became the CEO of Independence Media, the non-profit organization which owns and operates the independent public television station WYBE (now MiND TV). Previously, he was the Senior VP of Marketing & Media at CDNow. Prior to CDNow, Blumenthal was the President and co-founder of Glow in the Dark Productions, a program supplier to cable networks. His television credits include the Peabody and Emmy Award-winning Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?, which he created and produced for PBS, and MTV's Remote Control. At Warner Communications, he initiated the development effort that became MTV, and headed interactive development for QUBE. He is also the author of more than 20 books about business, marketing, creativity, history, music, and media. For 15 years, he wrote a syndicated column for more than 100 newspapers about consumer technology. He has been a faculty member at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania, and New School University.

Welcome to first meeting in 2009


Tom Boutell
Symfony: a Rails-like, agile web development framework for PHP

Web site development takes time. Most developers have heard about the benefits of Ruby on Rails, a development framework famous for its ability to speed the completion of a web site by anticipating common needs and minimizing busywork. But since Rails is written in Ruby rather than a more common language like PHP, Rails requires special programming skills and a separate infrastructure. The Symfony framework offers similar benefits for developers who prefer the popular PHP programming language. This half-hour presentation will focus on the features and benefits of Symfony, including an examination of a web site of local interest developed within the Symfony framework.

Tom Boutell is a web developer with P'unk Avenue, a Philly-based design firm with deep community roots. In years past he edited the original WWW FAQ, developed the 1.0 release of RealNetworks' RealAudio system and coded the "gd" graphics library used to generate graphics on the fly in many web sites. Since joining P'unk he has become an advocate of Symfony, a web application framework for PHP developers that draws inspiration from Ruby on Rails.
