If you think you hit the wrong place, no worries. I just updated the theme of the site to better fit in with the Mind Camp logo. Oh, and also because I didn’t think anyone would miss the periwinkle hyperlinks. I mean, I was correct in that assumption, right?

Well, that didn’t take too long at all. About two weeks after tickets went on sale for the second Seattle Mind Camp, all 200 tickets sold out. We want to thank the attendees for getting the ball rolling towards a successful event. The attendee list is impressive, and I personally look forward to meeting (or, in some cases, reconnecting) with everyone.

For those wanted to get in, leave a comment on this post. If anyone cancels, we will use the comments here as our waiting list.

O'ReillyWe want to give a shout-out to O’Reilly for showing their support of Seattle Mind Camp 2.0 by sponsoring the event.

O’Reilly Media spreads the knowledge of innovators through its books, online services, magazine, and conferences. Since 1978, O’Reilly has been a chronicler and catalyst of leading-edge development, homing in on the technology trends that really matter and spurring their adoption by amplifying “faint signals” from the alpha geeks who are creating the future. An active participant in the technology community, the company has a long history of advocacy, meme-making, and evangelism.

And you thought a FooCamp-Mind Camp connection would be a conflict of interest…

You know, I love the OPML, especially for uploading my favorite bloggers into sites like Newsvine.  It’s no muss, no fuss… very handy.  But sometimes I’m just too lazy to bother with all that typing, cutting, and pasting.  Fortunately for me, Alex Barnett has once again done the heavy lifting for me and assembled a Seattle Mind Camp OPML file, available here:  http://www.extremepodcasting.com/opml/seattlemindcamp_opml.xml.

If you’re not on the outline yet, and you’d like to be, just leave a comment here and Alex will hook you up.

LizardTechWe wanted to throw a “Thank You” out to LizardTech for stepping up as a sponsor for Seattle Mind Camp 2.0:

Since 1992, LizardTech has delivered state-of-the-art technology for managing and distributing massive, high-resolution digital content. Government and non-government organizations alike have benefited from our software products and technologies. We pioneered MrSID(r) (Multiresolution Seamless Image Database), a powerful wavelet-based image encoder, viewer and file format. LizardTech sits on the OGC Technical Committee and has been a chief contributor in extending the capabilities of JPEG 2000 to geospatial applications. Along with our partners, Galdos Systems, we are helping to drive cross-platform interoperability and rapid Internet distribution for geospatial imagery via the GeoWeb through the XML-based Geography Markup Language. LizardTech’s partnership with Oracle will enable databases to store and retrieve wavelet imagery. As we advance the imaging frontier LizardTech will offer software and solutions that integrate imagery into the next generation of data storage and network systems.
