At the office, I helped (with a bunch of other people) get a version of the O'Reilly Foo Camp launched. Some people know the concept as an Unconference or Barcamp. Since we are Disney, we tweaked the name a bit to Pooh Camp to put our own spin on it (and to avoid infringing on O'Reilly IP ;) ). Actually we spoke with Tim O'Reily and Sara Winge when we did the first one. Sara explained that many of the concepts are from the book Open Space Technology.
The story covers the second Pooh Camp we threw. You can see the Pooh Camp Flickrstream for all kinds of pictures.
For my part, actually I mainly sat in a comfy chair pontificating while others did all the work to make it happen. Obviously, this leads to me being quoted in an article for Corporate Meetings and Incentives, a magazine for people that worry about Corporate Meetings and Incentives.
The PDF version is good with pictures of yours truly and a nice layout. You'll dig the nicely staged cover photo and the image of me with a bullhorn...
In either case, my mother will be happy.Posted by michael at June 08, 2007 08:50 AM
