Quick Note

Jeddah was great, as always, and I had a good time. We were worried that the event won’t attract enough attention, but in the end we had a full house and a large number of people watched the live stream and followed the event on Twitter. As I said earlier, we are happy with how it turned out, but of course there was some problems and mistakes that should be solved and avoided in the future.

Saudi BlogCamp was only the first step, and now we are looking forward to the next Saudi BarCamp event. No concrete plans have been set up yet for what this future event would be about, but most probably it won’t be on blogging. Topics such as information security and charity work have been suggested, but we are open to all ideas.

If there is a topic that you feel strongly about and you think would make a good event, don’t hesitate to contact the guys. They will help you to organize the event by all possible means wherever you are in the Kingdom. Big thanks to everyone for making Saudi BlogCamp a success, and see you all soon.

  1. I think that you have to be more inclusive if you’re going to talk about technical issues like information security.

  2. From the non-Saudi peanut gallery, I admire your SaudiBarCamp event(s), and would suggest some themes that work well in other contexts for adaptation as you see fit (or not):

    “From our roots to our shoots: adapting our traditions for the 21st Century”

    “Charity and volunteer work: modes of transforming self and society”

    “Privacy, confidentiality, and information security: where the real world and the blogosphere meet”.

    Can you tell I organize conferences? LOL
    Hope these are inspirational and not too far off.

    Congratulations on the success of your SaudiBlogCamp, and good luck with your next SaudiBarCamp!
