All spring, on the FRUGOS list, we've been chatting about having a Front Range geo-unconference. Now, thanks to Tom Churchill, we have a venue and the GeoSummit unconference is on.
When: 16 June, from 0900 MDT until topics and participants are spent.
What: intense and fun discussion at the intersection of geography, location, and technology. Business, science, history, environment, transportation, software development, you name it.
People often report that hallway conversations and debates between (and sometimes instead of) scheduled sessions are the best part of conferences. An unconference is all about eliminating the boring stuff and getting right to these vital discussions.
The GeoSummit is not a BarCamp as such, but BarCamp is the model. Sessions will be created ad-hoc during the sign-in. No spectators. Everyone participates. Absolutely bare minimum sign-up fee. If you're interested, join the GeoSummit Google Group so that we can start to get a feel for numbers, and spread the word.
