Session Selection Process for Seattle Mind Camp

Posted by Stuart Maxwell
Categories: Sessions, Announcements,

Note: Some of you may have read this already when I posted it to the Seattle Mind Camp mailing list.  I wanted to repeat it here, in case there’s anyone who’s not on that list yet. We’ve tried to address some of the challenges of the previous method of having everyone sign up on the Session Grid at once, while retaining the spontaneity and egalitarian nature of that process.  We hope this new process will have …

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 …

Judging from the list of session ideas, this is going to be an amazing weekend! With so many good sessions running concurrently, it’s inevitable that we’re going to miss some of the action. However, good notes can help! I set up a spot in the wiki to index notes from Mind Camp 2.0: MC2 Session Notes. I’d like to encourage everyone to create pages and add notes to any of the sessions they attend. Also, for …

mindcamp icon

Posted by Stuart Maxwell
Categories: Sessions,

There’s a lot of activity going on on the Session Ideas wiki page, and I thought I’d highlight one or two sessions-in-planning over the next couple of days.  First up, Bryan Zug and Scott Berkun’s Good Thing Rapid Discovery Slam.  Here’s the description from Bryan’s blog: Bring something short and interesting to read or show — something that has inspired you (or been caused as a result of you being inspired). Can be original or someone …

The Lightning Talks session will be a full session comprised of five minute talks. It’ll be a whirlwind tour of ideas. Show something interesting you’ve done lately, talk about your favorite new discovery, beg for help with a difficult problem, proclaim a call to action, tell us about a successful project or about a failed project, pull out that sweet hack you did, make someone else do a talk. We want to hear it all. We’ll …

Mind Camp 2.0 Session: Invisible Children Screening

Posted by Andru Edwards
Categories: Sessions, Upcoming,

Earlier today I was able to view a short version of the film Invisible Children, a documentary focusing on a story where children are the weapons - and the victims - in a 20-year-long war going on in Northern Uganda. The 35-minute short version of the film was eye-opening, informative, and sometimes heart-breaking. On April 29, Invisible Children is having a nationwide call to action, where people across the nation will be commuting to outdoor places …

Categories: Sessions, Announcements,

We just got confirmation that State Representative Toby Nixon will be making an appearance at Mind Camp 2.0 at around 3:00 PM. When we set out to create this event, we wanted it to be much more than your run-of-the-mill camp/gathering/unconference. We wanted to do something relevant to the Seattle community. That being said, Toby’s appearance will be a great opportunity for us local big-thinkers to share our thoughts with the Seattle government. Toby will talk …
