I am going to attend Open Sesame Barcamp next saturday in Beirut. The Barcamp is organised by the very cool Rootspace created and managed by Dave Munir Nabti, a SF-Lebanese super active and bright mind.
Creative Commons is supporting it and we hope to find smart people, community and lawyers who would like to work with us to open a project in Lebanon.
You can have a look at the programme and register on the wiki or on site. Looking forward to meeting those of you who are in Beirut!
