About the Event
InfoCamp Seattle 2008 is an interdisciplinary unconference for anyone interested in user-centered information and design.
Last year, librarians, information architects, usability engineers, user experience designers, researchers, and other information professionals from all over the Pacific Northwest participated in InfoCamp. Here's what one of the librarians said about it:
"On the first day, there was a lot of energy and enthusiasm, and we filled up lots of the session times - 18 out of 20 time slots... The librarians (myself among them) hung out all day in the Conference Room, session after session, and had a great time talking about things." -Sam Wallin (http://supercrazylibrarianguy.wordpress.com/2007/10/14/infocamp-day-two
