16 days to go… I’ve been asking people to share their stories from Mind Camp.  Here’s what Bryan Zug had to say: So now I’m working remotely from Seattle for Children’s Hospital at Stanford and I have to say that it’s indirectly attributable to Mind Camp 1.0. How so? ...

Looks like a couple of posts got ground up in the big server upgrade that Andru was doing yesterday.  We should be caught up by now. Speaking of the full moon, some of you will appreciate this link.  For the rest of you: move along.  Nothing to see here. (Hat tip to Amal Graafstra) ...

What’s a Mind Camp?

Categories: Upcoming,

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 …

18 days to go… Despite the tendency of veteran Mind Campers to talk about what they got out of SMC1, it’s worth remembering that  Seattle Mind Camp is more about what you put in to it.  Mind Camp is first and foremost a participatory experience.  You, the campers, make the experience.  No one on the planning committe is going to decide who will speak, or which sessions will take place.  You’ll do that.  There will be …

19 days and counting… From the earliest planning session, we talked about wanting Seattle Mind Camp to be an event where bright Seattlites could meet other bright Seattlites.  We knew that there were a ton of cool projects going on in the city, but the chances to actually meet the people behind those projects were few and far between.  So we invited all the cool people we could think of.  Many of them showed up, along …

The Random Wow Factor

Categories: Aftermath, Upcoming,

(Speaking of random:  I was trying to find a picture of something with the number 20, and was suddenly struck with the realization that the portrait of Andrew Jackson on the double sawbuck is a dead ringer for Jeff Conaway.  I mean, is it just me?) 20 days until Seattle Mind Camp 2.0 As we look ahead to SMC2, I thought it might be interesting to take a moment to look back at SMC1.  I’ve been …

It’s On…

Categories: Upcoming,

We promised at the end of Seattle Mind Camp 1.0 that we would hold another gathering within six months.  So I know everyone out there has been waiting patiently for an announcement, wondering what the heck was going on, and whether SMC2 was actually going to happen.  As you can see from the previous post, though, it’s now finally official:  Seattle Mind Camp 2.0, noon to noon, April 29th to 30th, 2006. W00t, as the kids …
