Though it finished two days ago, I do still remember well about BarCamp Phnom Penh , an open technology conference which everyone has chance to express and share their knowledge in any topic related to technology.
This year marks the 3rd time of BarCamp celebration in Cambodia, but it is the first time for me to join as a volunteer for the event. Coming from different places is not a problem since they share the same interest of getting and sharing information.
I missed people who had been working together in organizing the event since one month before 25th-26th September, 2010. We are all getting to know each other clearly when we work and have meal together for three days (one day before the event and two days in the event).
So far, I have added some of those who have facebook account and hopefully those who not yet have the account can create it soon so that we are able to keep in touch together.
Below are volunteer names in BarCamp Phnom Penh  that I can find. If anyone cannot see their name, please let me know by any mean for example by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that I will update it as soon as possible.

Barcamp III started it’s first meeting with volunteers this afternoon since 3pm until 5pm. This first two hours meeting cannot enable all volunteers from various backgrounds to know each other well, but at least all of them know their positions and know who will be the leaders of their teams.
The best event can never be the best if it is lacked of good preparation, so hopefully it is not too late for Barcamp III since we have decided to start our first meeting from now on in order to discuss about the two day events which will be held from 25th to 26th September, 2010.
Barcamp III will be celebrated in the campus of University of Puthisastra (UP) after it was held at Cambodia-Japan Cooperation Center (CJCC) in 2008 and at Pannasastra University of Cambodia (PUC) in 2009.
