    for those of us who didn’t get to go to THATCamp, can you explain more of what this new model of conferences actually looks like? it sounds exciting but what is it? :)

    i just found your blog a few weeks ago (through Public Historian by Suzanne Fischer) and have really been enjoying thinking about the questions that you are asking!

    Hey, thanks for the kind words about the blog! Still very much a work in progress, but I suppose that’s true of most blogs (I’ll keep telling myself that, anyway).

    In any case, a couple of other folks did a nice job of summarizing what the unconference (as done at THATCamp) is like. They pretty well sum up my same gushing/relieved/impressed reaction:



    The unconference notion itself has a pretty good Wikipedia entry here:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unconference (the subsequent BarCamp link is a good description of the structural approach we took, too)

    However, if after all that you still have questions about what it’s actually like, just say the word! And welcome aboard. :)
