I've been writing about BarCamp, Unconferences and Open Space Technology -- but how do you do it?
[Later. I realized I haven't written about BarCamp or Unconferences, but intended to introduce them before publishing this. "A BarCamp is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment"-- using the Unconference model, which itself is a looser kind of self-organizing meeting like Open Space. So far its mostly a techie thing, but there's a skeptics BarCamp in Denver in August so the door has been opened to broader subjects. Got it? I'm thinking these might be good inspiration for the <snark> new "unaffilliates" </snark> and district and cluster meetings.]
I'd first recommend you read and bookmark/del.icio.us/Digg the following:
"Ten Steps to Organizing a Barcamp" (Clever, Clever Girl)
But since I found this link at the BarCamp site (BarCampsite?) you should look here, too. And share ideas you think apply here.
