Bummer of bummers. We do our best to support un-conference type events and we were really excited to be getting behind BarCampUSA. It seems that the crushing financial responsibilities of putting on a nationwide event were too much for the team.
According to their website, “While many of us were excited about the possibilities of the event it has become clear that we simply would not have the funds necessary to cover key expenses that were going to be due in May. (high speed broadband, event insurance, venue, etc.).”
We’re disappointed but we also know that the BarCampUSA folks gave it their best shot. We appreciate their effort and will continue to seek out events such as this to support in the future.
