Based on last week’s survey, we have created a schedule of small group meetups. The meetups are designed to be an opportunity to get to know microbloggers who share your interests. They are planned to last 30 minutes, alternating time slots with the presentation sessions.

In order to achieve this goal, we are limiting each session to 8 RSVPs so that all the participants will have a chance to introduce themselves and chat a bit.

Please RSVP. If any meetups exceed the attendee limit, we’ll create a waitlist.

As with everything else about Micro Camp, it’s a bit of an experiment. There are so many interests in the community and folks are spread out across many time zones, which makes it impossible to meet the demand within the short time frame of Micro Camp. But depending on how these meetups go, I can imagine organizing more of them at other times outside a special event, with interest groups and scheduling that accommodate more people.
