This weekend I attended two geek events:
- BAR Camp, a complete conference for a hundred geeks put together, from concept to opening the doors, in six days. The first “flash conference.”
- OPML Roadshow, a product introduction conducted at Berkeley’s Hillside Club, attended by digerati celebrities.
I’m gathering material for my book on Informal Learning. The way the geeks transfer information to one another and build social networks is more effective than the way corporations execute the same functions. I attended as both geek and anthropologist, and just finished writing up my notes.
I’d love to get your thoughts on this first draft of a chapter covering these events.
