Who Me, and hopefully YOU!
Why 'Cause it's FUN, and you're hoping I might bring an Xbox, a projector, and a copy of Halo 3!
What Whatever you want!  I'm planning to show some really cool Silverlight, Popfly and Photosynth stuff, but if you're passionate about something - sign up to talk about it!

BarCamp's really are a lot of fun.  I had a great time a few months ago talking about Silverlight with a group of designers at BarCamp Houston.  Many of them were Flash developers, interested in what Silverlight had to offer.  We had a great discussion where I talked about how Fox, Netflix, CBS, Microsoft, and others were committing themselves to Silverlight because of the fast, cost-effective HD video streaming capabilities, ease of development (thanks to a rich API and Visual Studio), and the fact that their developers could leverage their existing .NET development skills instead of being forced to learn a whole new language.  Today, many more companies have chosen Silverlight for the same reasons including Entertainment Tonight, the World Wrestling Federation, World Series of Poker, and SportZCast.  Of course, my current *favorite* Silverlight app is the Halo 3 Interactive Game Guide.  Come see me at BarCamp Dallas this weekend and I'll show them to you :)
