Event Recap: Online Community Unconference

Last week I had the distinct pleasure of attending the Online Community Unconference put on by ForumOne (huge kudos to Bill Johnston and Kaliya Hamlin).

If you’re not familiar with the unconference concept, I strongly suggest taking part in one. Here’s how the event broke down:

1. After a brief introduction, attendees were invited to come up to the front and give an overview of the session they wanted to lead.

2. Sessions are placed on a large, empty grid displayed on a large board.

3. Sessions are run by the people suggesting them.

There’s a bit more to it, but at the core, it’s that simple. The vibe is much more relaxed than a traditional conference. Participation was the word of the day. The event was a fantastic mix of people eager to learn and willing to ask newbie questions with old-school experts who loved helping people learn.

I can’t wait for next year’s event. Is it too early to book my tickets?
