The forthcoming Odebit 2009 tradeshow and conference, to be held Sept 22-23 in Paris, will apparently feature a so-called Fiber Camp.
It appears that I'm the one who suggested such a brainstorming workshop to the organizer, last year after the third edition of Odebit which has been quite a disaster in terms of attendance.
I even been part of the organization committee for some months, until the organizer decided to kick me out because I was suggesting her people for the conferences' cycle. Unfortunately, I haven't got the point: to speak at Odebit, you have to register as exhibitor first. A strange policy, for me who's more used to the US/UK way of building a conference' agenda...
So, this post is aimed to make it clear : I 'm not involved with this so-called Fiber Camp stuff.
Shall it be a success, fair enough: I'll be happy for the french FTTx community. Shall it be a failure, fine: it will give me a little bit more time to setup and launch the truly first european CampFiber, with fellow FTTH Evangelists Guy Jarvis and Costas Troulos.
