BaconCamp was a huge success and we raised about $1500 for the San Francisco Food Bank. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera at home. I’m ashamed – I didn’t take a single photo at BaconCamp. Good thing there are other more organized folks to step in:
Only 2 more days to eat the delicious Bacon, maple, cereal yogurt at YoCup. Try it before it’s gone! If you don’t live in San Francisco, just add the ingredients to some plain yogurt, and it’s almost the same experience.
BTW BaconCamp kicked major ass. 40+ presentations, 9 prizes, 300+ people, $1500+ raised for AHA. I am thoroughly pleased. Expect another BaconCampSF in a few months. Check out the blog for more details about the past event, and some photos on flickr.
Wow, I can’t believe it’s been more than a month since I thought about organizing BaconCamp. It’s a little more than a week away, and I can’t wait. Everyone has been so supportive and helpful. I’m feeling and appreciating all the love.
Vanessa and I made this video to help you learn all about bacon:
We are still looking for more submissions for dishes and art so please tell your friends and sign up today. Sign up by Monday, March 16th so that we can guarantee you a spot and make sure you have what you need to shine.
You only have 4 days left! We’ll have a few open slots for presentations the day of, but you want to sign.
Inspired by Arial Waldman‘s cupcakecamp (which was in turn, inspired by barcamp), I’m thinking of hosting baconcamp. I recently attended Baconfest, which was SO MUCH AWESOME. It would be fun to bring this celebration of all things bacony to this geek community. However, I’m not sure if there would be enough interest in it, so I made this little poll.
Technically, it’s 2 polls. A 2 question poll is considered a “survey” to polldaddy, and you can’t embed those things on a blog. They are popus. *shudder*
What you can do to make baconcamp a reality:
— pass this poll (these polls?) around. The more interest in it, the more likely I will execute.
— email me at karen[at]karenism[dot]com if you want to help organize
BTW, the above photo by Elsa is one of my favorite bacon photos ever.
