A field will be transformed into a high-tech campground with full service, including a 100Mbit network and Internet access for everyone. During 11 days, CampZone will be the home for up to 1200 computer enthusiasts from around the world. The main focus of the event is multiplayer gaming, but there will also be other activities, such as paintball."
Are there any recurring high-tech temporary communities on this scale in North America? The nearest thing I can think of is Burning Man
, and the comparison isn't all that close, especially when it comes to bandwidth.
