Days until Geek Camp begins

Purpose

To carry the message to the still suffering lust addict by the appropriate use of information technology (IT).

Content and Activities

Imagine a channel television station broadcasting on three channels

  • Channel A has a continuous series of one hour panel discussions on 8 different areas related to carrying the SA message using information technology. The panels will comprise SA members who are experienced in their given topic. These discussions will be streamed live over the internet, where they can be accessed only by SA members or guests who have received the necessary URL.
  • Channel B features a continuous series of one hour workshops where participants are guided by experienced facilitators to undertake activities which actually carry the message to still suffering sexaholics there and then.
  • Channel C is an interactive social media channel where SA members from around the world can fellowship together, share expertise, observe each other actually carrying the SA message using IT and encourage each other in doing so.

Program Timings

Here is the draft program – version 2 – subject to confirmation.

Host a Geek Camp Node

What is a Geek Camp node?

A node is a physical get-together of SA members in a specific location, in order to participate in the Camp as a group. It is envisaged that there will be many of these operating around the world at sometime during the 24 hours of the Camp .

To establish a Geek Camp node:

  • Sign-up for the Camp here, if you have not already done so
  • Publish your node’s proposed location in the Geek Camp Node Directory
  • Occupy a physical venue with a good quality wireless internet connection
  • Connect to the Internet with your chosen equipment (PCs, Laptops, etc.)
  • Participate in the Camp with other SA members from this venue

Beyond this, your node group is invited to:

  • Select and complete one Workshop Activity
  • Watch (or listen to) some Panel Topics
  • Provide a translator from English into your local language, if required
  • Provide a live stream of your own venue, so that other Geek Camp participants can see and hear you at work and at play
  • Provide refreshments and fellowship for those attending your node in person
  • Cover any costs in some appropriate manner

We hope that you will also enjoy a wonderful day of sober SA fellowship and contribute joyfully to the life of the whole Camp
