Buenas tardes from Mexico City! I’m at Campus Party, Europe and Latin America’s largest technology extravaganza, focusing on innovation, science, social value and digital entertainment. It’s a 7-day, 24-hour festival where 8,000+ young hackers/developers/gamers and geeks--equipped with laptops--camp and immerse themselves in 12 content areas (e.g. astronomy, developers, photography, PC games, music, security/networks, simulation and videos).
We’re excited to announce that CTIA has entered into a strategic partnership with Futura Networks to bring this exciting event stateside. Look for the first-ever Campus Party USA in summer 2012.
Here’s a pic of us prepping for the crowds and setting up 7,500 workstations for Campus-goers.
Check out the tents…although campers won't be sleeping much in the next seven days. The party goes around the clock, and I'm told 3:00 a.m. is peak productivity time. To give the campers the authentic “camping” feel, they play sounds of birds over the speakers.
