It's time to lower the BAR...

and then ride PONIES all over the world...


TagCamp complements BarCamp (that complemented FooCamp). Andy Smith's description of BarCamp

Tag Camp is an open, welcoming event for geeks to camp out overnight, get wired on Halloween candy and think really fast about tagging, its applications, and implications. It’s like Tag Tuesday but instead it's at Commercenet's beautiful Palo Alto office (490 S. Calif. Ave), featuring luxurious showers. Yes, that's right, with little fishies on the shower curtains too!

For updates and discussions join the TagCamp group.

CommerceNet 490 South California Avenue, 3rd Floor Palo Alto, CA 94306

It's an entire building floor, with rooms and here and there. Plenty of space for crashing out with your sleeping bags and some tents if that is wanted. BYO pillows.


Well, the details are up to you...

Did we mention luxurious showers?

Travel & Accommodations

(Borrowing generously from the FooCamp wiki)


  • Attendees must give a demo, a session, or help with one. This is called sharing, and we like it.
  • Presenters are responsible for making sure that notes/slides/audio/video of some kind is published on the web for the benefit of all and those who won't be present. Doesn't matter who does the work, just that the work get disseminated! What happens at Tag Camp must be spread beyond Tag Camp!
