What’s a Mind Camp?
17 days to go…
How do you describe Seattle Mind Camp to folks who haven’t been yet?
I usually tell folks the dry facts: It’s a 24-hour geek confab. Noon to noon, April 29 & 30. Lots of cool people talking about lots of cool things. It’s an un-conference… a conference without the conference - just extended hallway conversations.
I’m getting tired of saying the same thing over and over again, so I asked some other Mind Camp veterans what language they used to talk about Camp to the uninitiated:
Justin Martenstein coined the original description: “What happens when you put Seattle’s smartest geeks in a room together for 24 hours? We don’t know, but we’re willing to find out.”
Bryan Zug calls it “a big geek slumber party.”
Donte P. captures it this way: “You’ve heard of ‘snakes on a plane?’ Well, Mind Camp is ‘nerds in a room.”’
Jesse Ferguson offered forth some possible Mind Camp taglines:
- 250 brains are better than 1, Mindcamp 2.0
- Mindcamp 2.0 the nuclear chain reaction of brain power!
- Pry your pale geeky ass out of that basement and insert it into Mindcamp 2.0!
- Love NOT contemplating ingenious paradigms and stratagems with 249 other people? Then don’t come to Mindcamp 2.0!
And Amal Graafstra uttered this gem: “It’s an overnight party-time fun-house for smarty-pants types.”
Yeah, that about covers it.
