Bring Stuff!




Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Tips, Upcoming

Mind Camp is all about participation and networking - checking out what cool projects people are working on, and getting a chance to show off your own work, or to discuss your crazy off-the-wall ideas. We want to encourage everyone, therefore, to bring stuff. If you have a cool gadget you want to show off, bring it. If you’ve a website that you want to get some eyeballs on, bring your laptop (we’re working hard to make sure wireless will be readily available). Even if it’s just a cool book or piece of video, or anything that might spark an interesting conversation, bring it with you. We want everyone engaged and active and helping us out to make sure Mind Camp 8 blows the socks off of the last seven events. See you Saturday!

If you don't yet have your ticket, be sure to grab one on the Mind Camp 8 registration page!


This is an updated version of a post originally published on April 28, 2006. Seattle Mind Camp 8 takes place December 15-16 - get your tickets now!

Most of you who have previously attended Seattle Mind Camp understand the free-form nature of the beast.  However, many of you will be joining us for the first time, and I wanted to try to prepare you for the kind of event you’re going to encounter.  Mind Camp is not a traditional type of gathering, and the success of the event depends in large part on the willingness of the participants to wrestle the chaotic mess into order.

Seattle Mind Camp is an “unconference,” in the style of Bar Camp or Foo Camp.  The idea of an unconference has been promulgated by Dave Winer, among others.  As I understand it, Winer’s particular insight was that, for any conference panel discussion, you could take any random group of people out of the audience, replace the panel onstage with that random group, and have an equally enlightening and worthwhile session.  The Mind Camp experience seeks to leverage that idea by completely doing away with a pre-planned program of speakers. The day’s sessions will be designed by the attendees and the schedule will be curated by Andru Edwards and his Mind Camp Counselors team.
