So what is an unconference?

After earlier snarks, maybe I should explain. It's watching this, this and this, experiencing this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, this, and this. It's not having someone cut your conversation short because another session is about to start.

Well now that the unconference is over, you can start to enjoy the real conference. I don't think it's gonna get much better... :-)

Lol! Doesn't an unconference also involve alcohol, camaraderie, innovation and several people saying 'murder' a lot like they're in Taggart - if I remember TeachMeet08 correctly?!

I couldn't agree more. One hour blocks kill an unconference. Time to get back to get it back to its roots. The question is, how do you structure it to be unstructured when you have so many people who want to participate?
