Welcome to Tech UnCamp Where only the geeks survive.
For you pronunciation
Let’s say surly, opinionated things.
Wikipedia is straight crap.
Okay, only sometimes.
They don’t define an UnCamp…
so let’s try:
An unconference is a facilitated, participant-driven conference centered around a theme or purpose. The term "unconference" has been applied, or self-applied, to a wide range of gatherings that try to avoid one or more aspects of a conventional conference, such as high fees and sponsored presentations.
It’s still early. Yeah, um, I’ll break that down.
This is a free conference.
But you knew that already.
This was all planned on the fly by four working girls.
Not the corner. The reference desk.
You people are real sickos.
It’s a participant driven event.
More often than not you will be:
The audience The speaker The expert The novice All in the same session.
In a moment, you’re going to decide on what topics you’ll be talking about.
Chime in now… Or be bored later. Don’t be shy!
Best electronic resources for macrame and paper mache,
Things to know…
There will be a moderator (or two) in each session…
not to lead , but to guide conversation.
Stay on topic for your session:
‘ nuff said
Mind your manners:
minimize side conversations
Make sure others have the floor:
keep an eye out for the quiet ones
And when you have the floor,
don’t get too long-winded, k?
Those aren’t rules.
They’re more like guidelines for

And then accept all the legal crap you’ll see in the browser window…
Don’t break the rulez…
We only provided a rough outline for the UnCamp.
The rest is up to you. Provide suggestions and go with the flow. (No pressure or anything.)
And remember what yo mama said:
