Along with some of my compadres, Josh Holmes and Peter Laudati, we're helping our MIX team member Drew Robbins organize the Open Space @ MIX area. What is it? Well, sort of whatever you want it to be. If you've never been to an Open Space event format before there are some things you should know...
Four principles of Open Space:
- Whoever comes are the right people to be there
- Whatever happens is the only thing that could have happened
- Whenever it starts is the right time
- When it's over, it's over
Other than that, we're asking and welcoming anyone who would like to share something with the MIX audience online and offline. We're providing all the equipment and scheduling needs you'll require and hoping you'll have something to share with us. Starting at 4:00 PM on March 4 people will be able to start signing up for session blocks outside the MIX Sandbox area. Visit the Open Space @ MIX site for more details!
If you have something to share, be sure to visit and register for a time block. We'll be around with some video equipment and will help you share it in person as well as get it up online at the MIX08 Open Spaces site!
