Own your data.
Rather than posting content on third-party silos of content, we should all own the content we're creating. Publish on your own domain, and syndicate out to silos.
This is the basis of the "Indie Web" movement (see why for more). We'll get together for a weekend to talk about what has been done in the field, and what still needs to be done. There will be workshops and breakout sessions.
IndieWebCamp is a regular (usually annual) gathering of web creators building and sharing open web technologies to empower users to own their own identities & content on the web, and advance the state of the indie web. See what we've done at #Previous IndieWebCamps.
The third annual IndieWebCamp will be through , immediately after Open Source Bridge 2013. Save the dates!
Geoloqi graciously provided the space for IndieWebCamp 2012.
Flights: If you're flying from the SF/Bay Area to Portland (PDX), Alaska, Southwest, and Virgin America are recommended and have frequent flights to PDX.
IndieWebCamp is for active creators only in order to focus the limited time we have on productive real world discussions and code/design/ux sharing that will help us move forward.
Attendees must actively use a personal domain name, or be an apprentice to someone who has one in order to attend.

Whether you're just getting started publishing on the web or you've been doing it for years, the best place to start is the Getting Started page, which will show you how you can incrementally build your presence on the web.
Have a look at the IRC logs or the recent changes to see what we've been discussing/working on lately.
