Space to Think

So thinking can develop

Comment from someone who attended KiwiFoo Camp

Debate and Open Discussion…wot a buzz

… Key to the whole event is that it’s not a conference; it’s an unconference, in effect user generated/created at the event. The approach with Foocamps/Barcamps is contribution/involvement. In short, no spectators and no hierarchy…Oh yeah, and enjoy yourself. So sessions are about discussion/debate and as a result learning, not about attending a “losing your will to live due to powerpoint” set of presentations. I think I saw two powerpoint sessions all weekend, and basically just a few slides to help with some information flow to support discussion. …

That’s what I was imagining and trying to convey.
