CaseCamp registration is back open!

We had such a great response to CaseCamp that we sold out in two days – obviously this cannot stand, so in a few hours we’re going to send out a mass email with the news that we’ve changed the venue to Carlu.

At Carlu we’ll be able to accommodate many more people. Also, stay tuned for three new presenter announcements and a raft of new sponsors too.

Thanks to everyone who helped make this happen, especially Rita, Michelle, Sarah, Bonnie, Rachel, Arieh, Len, Iris, Janet and Shannon!

Congratulations to the Know Your Meme crew – Kenyatta, Ellie, Jamie and Andrew – for being named one of the Top 50 sites of 2009 in Time Magazine.  I’m really looking forward to seeing my favorite Internet Scientists present at CaseCamp.

It’s seen amazing growth — we’re now at more than 500 meme entries, 10k images, and will serve over 4.5 million pageviews this month!””

It’s been a fabulous last 24 hours, as we’ve started to take CaseCamp live, the interest from the community has grown and I’m loving this groundswell of support.  I know that if we all come together, then not only will have an outstanding unconference, but we will also be making a major contribution through our SickKids project.

I’d like to take a moment to thank our list of sponsors, many of whom have just joined. Thank-you, CaseCamp would not be happening without your support.
