MindCamp has been variously boring and really interesting, depending on the moment, discussion, and relative proximity to random happenings all around. I’ve got to say it is much more successful than I expected.
There’s folks that I’ve written back and forth with over the past several years that I’d never met until tonight. Others that I’d worked with previously who I hadn’t seen in a year or so. In general, it’s been a huge diversity of folks and topics. Gus took off for the night, but I’m going to stick around and run through the night. The population definitely dropped off about 10pm – we had easily 150 earlier today, and as I’m writing this we’re down to maybe 60 or 70 people scattered about several room and one really large room.
The most interesting topics today were augmentation (early in the morning) and visualization of language (late tonight) that really had diverse folks involved in them.
Not sure where I’m going to crash yet (lots of space, it’s just getting a corner that I like at this point). I expect getting somewhere nailed down is the next order of business.
