From my Lift12 talk http://liftconference.com/lift12/program/talk/julien-dorra-we-come-internet-lets-build-realspace-events
Cyberspace is now the main space where we exchange ideas, work and organize. We live in it every day, every hours of our lives. It is real. It is effective.
But what about realspace, physical places?
Realspace work and collaboration feel *outdated*.
In the office, we don’t know what is going on in the next cubicle. Professional realspace events like conferences are racing to renew their purpose and relevance, competing with incredibly good web talks for attention.
And in the middle of this gap, a new kind of event is emerging. Collaborative events where people meet, team up and actually build something new together. Started in the open source community, these creative events are now infecting companies, universities, even museums! They come from the internet.
This is the story of how of those events are pushing realspace creativity to a new level.
