Many suns have risen in the east and set in the west since the first gathering of the Wocoa people.
Most brothers and sisters enjoyed our last Pow Wow in Berlin and wanted to continue sharing their rhythms and tales about WebObjects and Cocoa development in the future. So the Wocoa drummers decided that they will beat the drums this summer too, so that our people can share their dreams.
We are glad to see that Apple decided to make our next Pow Wow even easier to remember, by releasing its wild cat, Mac OS X Jaguar, on exactly the same day.
As usual this event will be as unorganized as ever. Please do not expect a regular and boring trade show or conference, but bring your DVDs, guitars and PowerBooks instead.
This time we are gathering in the settlement called "Amsterdam" in the Lower countries (Netherlands), where canoes are the main means of transportation and people smoke strange plants. Our host this time will be the tribe of the Tuparevs.
It will all happen on the last weekend in the month of the thunder
Sat, August 24, 2002
Full details about the location will be mailed to all those who registered.
Since Amsterdam is a very popular place to hang around, canoes and wigwams are difficult to find on short notice. So if you intend to join us, please send a message with your name and preferred email-address to:
as soon as you can. Both are necessary for your name badge. And ...
After registration you will receive a confirmation mail and a second mail with the exact location details, shortly prior to the event. You will also be added to the email@example.com mailing list unless you explicitly state that you do not wish to be part of it.
We do not charge any fee for attending this Pow Wow but you will have to cover your own expenses.
You must register because we need to know how many Wocoa dancers will stomp our tipi. Otherwise we can not pick the right place and we cannot guarantee to find a big enough place if you register after
You might miss a great canoe trip through our settlement's channels if you register after August 10th.
The Big Plan
The plan is fairly simple and looks like this:
Like during previous events we are again looking forward to welcome 80 - 100 highly motivated and creative Wocoa dancers.
Over the following weeks we will fill this section with a list of names and topics. Those are the people that are willing to share some of their wisdom with the rest of us. They are not official speakers but will also not hesitate to speak to a larger crowd if there is enough interest in listening to their tales and watching their demos (the order represents the order in which we received the notice)
If you also want to demo something special or have knowledge that you are willing to share ... please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us about it so that we can add you to this list.
Since most of you are coming from far away places and will hopefully beat the drum until the late evening, we think that a place to sleep might be something you are looking for.
Stay tuned for a list of hotels. It will also be posted on the events mailinglist and should be most up-to-date on the Wocoa page at Tuparev Technologies.
Beat the drums
We hope that you send the necessary smoke signals to your friends and that you tell them about the Wocoa Pow Wow. The more "Indians" come - the better and louder our Pow Wow will be.Share and Enjoy.
