Day 1 of Startup Camp 5
First day of Startup Camp went well, but it was a bit uneven. As always, it is free and is a great way to network and learn about new technologies. But this time around, they added some traditional panel discussions that did not really inspire me. Worse is that it seems to have really made people more introverted than they should have been at an “unconference.” The unconference portion started at 4pm, but it seemed to me that most people were in a passive frame of mind for the first session. Many people sat passively, asking few questions, listening to mostly one speaker and not drifting from session to session. They seemed to get more in the swing of the unconference in the second session.
Startup Camp continues tomorrow. I am looking forward to it. If you are going, I will see you there.
