Why does this interest anyone but me? It probably doesn’t, but yet who knows who will read these things and be tantalized to explore further into the upcoming.org database of events. Upcoming.org is so underutilized outside of the Bay Area and it’s a shame. Several events I’ve heard about locally here in Baltimore could recieve better visibility if the mainstream caught on to some of the Web 2.0 tools.
- The Flickr Show at Hampdenfest – September 16. A localized big event, Hampdenfest, which celebrates all things Baltimore in the same fashion that Artscape dominates the local Baltimore art scene, Flickr photographers will be sharing their Baltimore photography for all to see.
- Balticon 41 – May 25-28, 2007. Though well in advance, this interesting science fiction festival attracts all kinds of bizarrities and is a central icon in the odd Baltimore landscape every year.
- The Underground Online Seminar – March, 2007. I’m told that the man putting this thing on, Yanik Silver, is really very good though I can’t for the life of me figure out how much this event costs. It is being hosted in Washington, D.C.
- New Technology Seminar with Khoi Vinh – September 21. Khoi is, of course, the director of design for NYTimes.com and runs his own blog at Subtraction.com.
So what can you find interesting in Upcoming.org or other events happening in your locality?
