This year’s venue is the United Nations.
“WordCamp NYC is a part of an open source initiative sponsored by the United Nations.
The UN wants to bring the various Open Source communities together as a positive force for change. The UN offered use of their space during their week of recess as a way of facilitating this end.”
WordCamp NYC will be a weekend of learning and sharing about WordPress and open source projects, where everyone from attendees to sponsors and speakers will together help democratize publishing.
