WordCamp Beijing 2007 Update

On August 30, the registration for WordCamp Beijing 2007 is closed. During the registration period, a total number of 345 people registered for the one-day event, a number not too far off from the total number of attendees in WordCamp 2007 in U.S. The number of attendees is beyond anyone’s expectation, in a way it also demonstrates the enthusiasm among the Chinese bloggers. Taking into account that the event only had 15 days of registration period, then you will understand the significance of this number. If there was a longer registration period, I think the number would easily go beyond 500. With the closing of registration, the schedule of the event is also finalized. I have here a roughly translated schedule for English speakers if you are interested.

  • 08:00-09:00: Registration
  • 09:00-10:00: Development and Ideals of WordPress — Jing Liang (Founder of 72Pines)
  • 10:00-10:50: Blog Reconstructs Internet — Lu Xinxin

  • 16:20-16:30: Break
