For those who aren't familiar with a Barcamp,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BarCamp says:

"*BarCamp* is an international network of user-generated conferences (or
unconferences <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unconference>). They are open,
participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants.
The first BarCamps focused on early-stage web
and were related to open source
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_source> technologies,
social protocols <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protocol_(computing)>, and
open data formats <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_formats>. The format
has also been used for a variety of other topics, including public transit,
health care, and political organizing."

This name is absolutely *brilliant* and hilarious.
