O'Reilly RadarBrady Forrest just informed me that we will be getting a handful of books to give away at Seattle Mind Camp 3.0. The books are Mind Performance Hacks and Building Scalable Websites. We will figure out an interesting way on how to determine the winners at the event.

The O’Reilly Radar team, pays attention to what’s new and interesting in the world of technology.  Our methodology is simple: we draw from the wisdom of the alpha geeks (like MindCampers) in our midst, paying attention to what’s interesting to them, amplifying these weak signals, and seeing where they fit into the innovation ecology. We share our thoughts via the Radar blog and our conferences such as ETech, Where 2.0, RailsConf, and the brand new Web 2.0 Expo.


Google

We are happy to announce that Google has stepped in as a Mind Camp 3.0

Platinum

Diamond Sponsor, taking care of dinner for the event. We know that you already know - but it needs to be said:

Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful.

As a first step to fulfilling that mission, Google’s founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin developed a new approach to online search that took root in a Stanford University dorm room and quickly spread to information seekers around the globe. Google is now widely recognized as the world’s largest search engine—an easy-to-use free service that usually returns relevant results in a fraction of a second.
