My dear MediaWiki and Semantic Wiki folks,

Just a reminder that SMWCon Spring 2012 will start on Wednesday 4/24 at 9am (Pacific Daylight Time, GMT-7) , kicking off with tutorials and a first-ever editithon, then 2 full-day conference, all with gourmet meals, and fun social activities, including the use of gym, saline pool and executive lockers in the conference venue. If you're attending in person, good for you; otherwise, you can still participate remotely.

We will try to do live broadcasting with WebEx tomorrow - the first time for SMWCon, we sure hope the bandwidth is good enough. Please feel free to join our webinar sessions as listed in each presentation. In case you missed the live action, we'll also record video anyway for later watch - and will upload within a day or two. 

Of course, you can always participate via the IRC channel (general SMW IRC channel #semantic-mediawiki or this webchat interface.), and Twitter (#smwcon). 

Come to join us at TriCity Wellness Center, to share knowledge and play with data!

Cheers,
Jesse Wang

This SMWCon Spring 2012 offers you great opportunity to learn, communicate, and socialize, at really low cost, thanks to our sponsor ai-one; if you're a student, you can even save money attending the conference than eating out;)

Please check out the Keynote Talks, and Breakfast for Business event which is free to all (no registration required), and all social events, or even propose your own, such as "Talk about social web around (or in) the pool;). 

For people who found themselves already have an account created (but not getting an email, please email me for your password, sorry we had an email server issue earlier).

Thanks a lot and we're looking forward to seeing you at SMWCon Spring 2012 on April 25-27, in Carlsbad, California!
