Dave Nielsen, co-founder of the Cloud Camp series of unconferences (one was just held in San Francisco) gives me an innovative way that he’s found to introduce unconferences (video) to people who don’t know what those are. I like his approach because we all have to teach people who are unfamiliar with things we are building or talking about. I remember how hard it was to get many of you to try Twitter (although most of that hard work is conveniently forgotten today). Anyway, if you have a chance to participate in a Cloud Camp (there are two that start tomorrow in Portland, Oregon and Columbus, Ohio) you should do it. The people who went to San Francisco’s version praised it.
