Goals for BarCampMilwaukee / NN issues

Being an engineer and having an 'engineer' personality, this author developed goals for BarCampMilwaukee.

Most of the people participating in BarCampMilwaukee will put minimal thought into the event, other than possibly preparing to lead a session on a topic they're passionate about. And that's okay, because everybody's busy, and BarCampMilwaukee is unquestionably an informal event. People helping plan the event will, of course, be putting lots of mental energy into making the event as successful as possible for themselves and the other participants.

Here are this author's ten personal goals for BarCampMilwaukee:
  1. Get four sponsors for BarCampMilwaukee
  2. Contribute significantly to getting a diverse participant group (different OSs, hardware people, software people, tech users, tech makers, etc)
  3. Co-lead a good Fab Lab & Media Lab session
  4. Contribute to getting a fun BarCampMilwaukee video put together
  5. Get one or more remote participants
  6. Get two interesting non-Wisconsin participants
  7. Contribute to a well-run OpenSpace/unconference agenda-setting session
  8. Help plan an effective networking/small group/ice-breaker opener for BarCampMilwaukee
  9. Co-lead a good Portable Computing w/ 1 GB Flash Drive session
  10. Meet ten new interesting tech people at BarCampMilwaukee
If you're participating in BarCampMilwaukee, or some other conference or event, consider reading "Never Eat Alone" by Keith Ferrazzi. You'll benefit from using some of Keith's suggestions for connecting with new people. Guaranteed.
