The Diversity at WikiCamp
As I type this, we have over a hundred participants registered for WikiCamp. I’m not surprised. All, yes, ALL the events that we have organized earlier (BarCampChennai, BlogCamp, Proto.in) have had excellent participation. And in all the events, we had to close the registration because we hit maximum capacity. With 12 days to go, WikiCamp looks headed the same way too.
What really surprised me is the diversity fo the participants. I had expected a very geeky crowd but take a look at the type of people we have.. Cardiac Surgeon, Student, Marketing Head, CEO, Advertising Executive, Software engineer, Entrepreneur, Writer, Wikipedian, Public Relations Executive, Sales Head, Motivational Trainer, Academic Researcher…
It’s this diversity that adds richness to the event.
