BarCampMilwaukee Aftermath / NNf

BarCampMilwaukee is over for this year. In the next few days, the aftermath of the event will be documented and possibilities for the future will be explored.

Approximately one hundred people participated in the first BarCampMilwaukee, 30 September - 01 October 2006. New connections were made between people passionate about technology and about how it can be used or created. The 31 hours of BarCampMilwaukee were a fun and interesting time, and the sessions I participated in were exercises in learning, sharing and stretching my mind. There are still random thoughts from countless conversations bouncing around from one gray cell to another. As those thoughts coalesce, a list of possibilities and some priorities will emerge and be documented on this blog.

Several items on this week's NEW NET issue list are about the Yahoo Hack Day which was also held this weekend. Hack Day was somewhat like BarCampMilwaukee, only on a grander and slightly more expensive scale. The number 10 item on the NEW NET list below discusses how traditional industry conferences and expos are not faring as well as in the past, and barcamps and 'hack days' may be some of the events filling the void.

Today's post will be short so I can get the NEW NET issues list on-line in preparation for tonight's gathering at Mister Churro. If you were unable to participate in BarCampMilwaukee, consider participating in BarCampMadison in early 2007. Watch the BarCampMilwaukee Aftermath webpage for future events and projects in which you can participate and collaborate. And put BarCampMilwaukee 2007 on your calendar for next year as soon as the date is set. We look forward to seeing you there!
