Back to China!

Headin' Back to ChinaOn Friday I’ll be headed back to China as part of the China Access 2008 program for the IT and Creative industries. I’m very excited to return to Beijing and on this trip I will also be heading over to Shanghai as a part of the extended program. Among other activities I’ll be presenting on Social Software and Web 2.0 with Robert Scales at the China Access 2008 event.

We’re also pulling together Barcamp Shanghai with the help of Crystal WIlliams and a bunch of people on the ground in Shanghai. I’ll be facilitating a PhotoCamp and a PhotoWalk. It’ll be the first Barcamp in China and should be pretty fun… if you’re in the area, please signup to come. We have lots of sponsors so it’ll be free, but limited to 80 people.
