StartUp Camp Buzz to Begin
StartUp Camp starts tomorrow through Friday in Mountain View. David Berlind is in town (an east coaster through and through - he's in New Hampshire by the ocean baby, be jealous of him in the summer and fall) to keep the UnConference spirit going. Don't forget about the "best start up contest," where as an attendee, you have an opportunity to participate. I hope to make it down for part of the activities but there's that whole city/South Bay thing that I never thought I'd fall prey to. The inner voice says, "traffic, traffic, traffic...." The external voice says, "seek the South Bay sunshine, sunshine, sunshine...."
There's always wireless at these events so there's no excuse for not finding a corner to be productive if you need to. It's not quite social or participatory but it can be done and is often the reason why so many people have heads hung over their laptops at so many of these events. There's simply too many of them to go to not to be glued to your screen. Add to your workload a series of open wikis, chat rooms and open blog pages, it becomes an addiction.
The conference venues and coffee bars become your office and vice versa. Just ask Om Malik, who now spends more time in a Starbucks than his flat. Watch the blogosphere for on-site activity starting within hours.
