Here I am feeling so innovative -- it must be the Day Job -- by talking up Open Space Techology, Unconferences and BarCamps, and then Dan Harper very gently reminds me (us) that he's been down that road before about a year and a half ago:
My thoughts on organizing a theological bar camp are here:
Organizing it and running it seem pretty straightforward to me â€” just an organizational overlay over standard event logistics.
While my post generated absolutely no interest among the religious liberals who read my blog, I still think it would be a good event. Indeed, a decade ago I helped plan one or two UU young adult conferences (this was back when I was a young adult) which had some resemblance to this idea. Itâ€™s one of those things where if people actually tried it, they would realize that itâ€™s so much better than the standard, dreary General Assemblies and district conferences.
I even commented at the time but it slipped my mind.Â He's right, you know, and very persuasive at his site. (Read this earlier post, too.) So, what about it gang?Â Please comment.
