A group of people in the alt.net community in Seattle have organized a conference in just a couple of months. They decided to use an Open Space Technology format and asked me to facilitate the conference. My company, FutureWorks Consulting, agreed to sponsor the conference by donating my time, so I jumped at the chance. Though I usually hang out with the Agile software development crowd, last November I met a few alt.net guys at the OreDev conference in Sweden. We had great conversations there, and I was eager for more interactions with these really smart people. And it gave me a chance to ride the train to Seattle. What could be better? The conference opened last night and will continue through Sunday. Session titles and notes are posted to the conference wiki. To follow the twitterstream of the conference, check out #altnetseattle.
