Seattle Mind Camp 5.0: November 22-23 at Synapse!

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Upcoming, Announcements

When you guys said you wanted us to go back to the 24-hour format for Mind Camp, we decided to make sure that happened, no matter how long it took to find the appropriate venue. Thanks to Mind Camp attendee Scott Bright, we’ve got it - Synapse, located in downtown Seattle. Never heard of Synapse? Well, that’s kinda the point - they do some amazing things there, but no one knows it. They also just happen to have an amazing space for us to use for a 24-hour Mind Camp event. So it’s on.

Seattle Mind Camp 5.0 will start on November 22 at 11:00 AM, and will conclude the following morning, November 23 at 10:00 AM.

Here’s the address:

Synapse
1511 6th Ave
Seattle, WA 98101

Here’s the Facebook event page.

Go ahead and spread the word, we think this will be the best Mind Camp event we’ve ever done, because the space is casual, and fits in perfectly with the things we want to do. Plus, they have some really cool stuff to show off. You gonna be there?

Tips for the Unconference Presenter

Posted by Stuart Maxwell Categories: Tips, Sessions

The idea of an unconference is relatively new, so I suppose it’s not surprising that few people have a well-developed sense of how to plan and execute a top-notch unconference session.  Time management, choosing compelling topics, or coping diplomatically with a participant who’s monopolizing the conversation can all be challenges, even for experienced conference presenters.  So, whether you’re a newbie to November’s Mind Camp, or an experienced ‘Camper, you’ll really appreciate Scott Berkun’s latest post entitled “How to run a great unconference session.”

Scott’s post is filled with plenty of Dos and Don’ts, including some session patterns you can use to help shape your presentation.  If you’ve signed up for Seattle Mind Camp, or any unconference, I’d encourage you to give it a read.
