Camp is fully engaging. Time is short and you to make the best of it. People come to participate and to network. Camp was in the School Wthout Walls High School. We ate in the cafteria and used ten classrooms & meeting spaces. We wrote out our own name tags. No posh hotel conference centers, no podiums and few powerpoints. Just casual (not even business casual) and a lot of Gen X & Y energy. The price was right too - $0, and 8 hours of time.
Here are more "postcards from camp".
"What is an unconference like, what can it accomplish and what happens when people from transit, planning agencies, and the tech world, with plenty of academics mixed in, get together for conversation and without pre-planned sessions?" More at the Express Stop.
