WordCamp Las Vegas. You interested?

I've been a long time user of WordPress and could probably be considered a glorified fanboy at this point. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to make it to any of the WordCamp events as they have all taken place a little too far away. I was lucky enough to attend the first Blog World Expo here in Las Vegas and am registered to attend again next month. Even still, I think it would be a great learning experience (not to mention a lot of fun) to hang out with a bunch of WordPress users geeks for a weekend.

After watching Matt Mullenweg's “State of the Word” speech from WordCamp San Francisco, that got the wheels turning. “Why not organize a WordCamp here in Las Vegas?” I asked myself. I can't come up with enough compelling reasons not to.

So I ask you, are you interested in coming to a WordCamp held in Las Vegas? Would you be interested in volunteering some time to help organize? Are you interested in being a sponsor? Would you want to be a guest speaker?

Leave me a comment or drop me a line at John [at] JohnHawkinsUnrated.com and let me know what level of involvement you are interested in.

Viva Las Vegas!

    I am soooo in. I can probably bring at least one other person as well.

    I wouldn't say this about many people but I think if you put your mind to it I believe you could pull this off.

    Good Luck!

    @Sam Thanks, I appreciate that. Looks like all I need to do is find a place to host it, pick a date and then figure out all the madness.
