Unconference

Post by planeta »

Unconference - Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unconference
An unconference is a conference where the content of the sessions is created and managed by the participants, generally day-by-day during the course of the event, rather than by one or more organizers in advance of the event. To date, the term is primarily in use in the geek community. Open Space Technology, however, is an unconference process that has been around since 1985 and is now in widespread use. Open Space Technology is an energizing and emergent way to organize an agenda for a conference. Those coming to the event can post on a wiki ahead of time topics they want to present about or hope others will present about. The wiki can also be used to share who is coming because it is the attendees who have a passion to share that contribute to the event and will make it great.

Guide to Open Space Technology

Post by planeta »

Guide to Open Space Technology
http://www.planeta.com/web/ost.html
Open Space Technology (OST) is a creative re-imagining of relationships. It is the methodology we use for the Planeta Forum and it is the ideal means of bridging online and offline events. OST was developed in 1985 by organizational consultant Harrison Owen.

One of the more interesting rules is "The Law of Mobility" (or The Law of Two Feet) which states that if persons find themselves in situations where they are neither learning anything or contributing anything, they are responsible for moving to another place -- using their two feet to find a place where their participation is more meaningful. This simple rule keeps the participants engaged in making the conference interesting.
