If you you can't make it to barcampLA this weekend, but want to participate virtually, then I have the solution for you. ooVoo is a new company that just quietly launched it's real-time video messaging application. [Disclosure: I'm currently working for ooVoo as a consultant, and I think it's hawt!] Until this week, very few folks got to experience the real-time video messaging experience with ooVoo. But now, you too can see the reaction on someone's face - not wait for the smiley.
I'll be demoing ooVoo at Barcamp, but you can experience it for yourself. Download the application at www.oovoo.com. If you need an invitation, email me and I will send you an invite. Once you are on the system, search for BarcampLA 1, BarcampLA 2, BarcampLA 3, or BarcampLA 4. (You can also search for me: Heather). At various times in the weekend I will be streaming the sessions - live. You can watch along. If you want to do a remote session, let me know and we can project you on the screen, all from the comfort of your own home. It will be fun. Try it.
See ya this weekend.
