Host your own Scripting Enabled

The London Event on the 19th and 20th of September 2008 proved that it does not take much to run a Scripting Enabled event. The only money spent was on catering.

Scripting Enabled means first and foremost one thing: removing barriers. And with this we mean barriers that keep disabled users from accessing the web and the services offered by web sites and applications but it also means removing the barriers between geeks and non-geeks.

It is about information, communication and collaboration - not about fancy prizes or advertising your products.

Therefore - and because I am a great believer in the power of leaderless organizations - anyone can run a Scripting Enabled event in their location. There are only a few rules I want you to follow in order to keep things maintainable and in the original spirit.

If you can say “yay” to these rules, I am happy to support you in any way I can to get a Scripting Enabled event off the ground in your area. Simply comment here, send an email (email in the footer of this page as a vCard), or message me on twitter (codepo8 is the name).

Thanks, let’s kick arse!
