And the next word camp in this area is Word Camp Atlanta on February 3-4.  Tickets have been sold out for this event.  And currently I have no plans on attending.  Especially with no job and still on unemployment income.  I really had a good time at Word Camp Birmingham and let’s make this a yearly event!
