"Barcamp Singapore 3"

Preetam informs me that Barcamp Singapore 3 is this month.

Asked if I would be interested in presenting - Creative Commons, Music, and "even library stuff".
BarCamp / BarCampSingapore3
Date: Saturday, 28 Feb 2009

Venue: Ngee Ann Polytechnic Blk 27, Level 2 (Teaching and Learning Centre), 535 Clementi Road, Singapore 599489

Objective: To bring together Infocomm professionals and also key people working in the energy, media, bio-tech and other industries to collective think of ideas that can be developed amidst the sluggish market conditions.

What do people do at BarCamp?
BarCamp is an ad-hoc un-conference born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees.

All attendees should give a demo, a session, or help with one. All presentions are scheduled the day they happen. Prepare in advance, but come early to get a slot on the wall. Presenters are responsible for making sure that notes/slides/audio/video of their presentations are published on the web for the benefit of all and those who can’t be present.

Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join.

So, every participant is also a presenter eh? Never attended a barcamp before.

The 'Rules' and 'What To Expect' part is pretty clear though.

And I'll have stuff to share. Think I'll combine Creative Commons + Music, and "Library Stuff" :)

OK, I'm in.

Update: This is what I'll be sharing:
"How to produce and publish your music album online, practically free, without a music production company or distributor" by Ivan Chew
I'll share my experience in producing and publishing my music albums. Will cover the "How Tos" on setting up a home studio without costing an arm and leg; How sites like ccMixter (among others) makes it possible for you to produce songs even if you don't play any musical instruments; How to distribute your music online (otherwise known as 'How to shamelessly promote your music'). If there's time, I'll throw in an overview of what's Creative Commons and why it matters.


  1. Great topic Ivan...would definitely attend- what time is your session?


  2. Mine's at the 4pm-4.30pm slot Room 1.

    thanks for your interest. :)
