have pre-registered thus far, spanning realtors, lawyers, domain registrars,
insurance brokers, students, domain experts and novices," said Scott Smith,
one of the TelCamp organizers. "The TelCamp.tel model has been godsend in
helping to manage an event that by its very nature is organic."
Telnic Communications Director Justin Hayward: "Building on the initial
idea of TelCamp created by another member of the .tel community, TelCamp.tel
is a fantastic structured resource that can be employed by the international
TelCamp community as it will be handed on to subsequent organizers in future.
As it's such a flexible platform, we're sure to see new features added as new
"We took the core functionality of .tel and built the foundation of a
dynamic, self-service system to assist all TelCamp organizers," explains Mark
Kolb, also an event organizer and principal architect of the TelCamp.tel
model. "From its inception, .tel has sparked fascination and controversy
around the world. Hopefully, with the introduction of this interactive model,
in addition to managing registrations, attendees and session topics, it will
demonstrate the enormous versatility of .tel."

everyone. Entrance is via the Queen's Park doors and registration starts at
