In reading over the feedback from SMC1, some of the things that jump out at me as areas of improvement for the organizers have to do with communication: Letting people know what to expect ahead of time, promoting the available resources, and so on.
This is the age of social web software, and we’re bleeding-edge geeks, so help me out, here: What tools could we be using to better communicate and coordinate? Here’s what we’re using so far:
The planning committee has used Writely, JotSpotLive, Skype, Gmail, Gchat, and iChat to communicate. We’ll have an IRC backchannel for the event. I just created a public Google Calendar (subscribe via XML and iCal).
And, of course we recommend tagging photos, blog posts, and so on with mindcamp2.0, so that they’ll be easily found. (Tara Hunt suggests adding a “geekevent” tag, too, so we can track the growth of all these unconference gatherings.)
So what are we missing? What whiz-bang web technology could we use that we’re not using yet? And what can we communicate about that will make your Mind Camp experience better?
