ProductCamp Boston is coming to Cambridge, Massachusetts on June 9th, 2012. It’s at the Microsoft New England Research and Development (NERD) Center. Like a BarCamp, ProductCamps are unconferences: They are volunteer run and free.
Please vote for my proposed a talk there Why and how to create and edit articles for Wikipedia. It’s not directly related to Android or Java, but it fits into the theme of lean startups, scrum, and getting traction.
Hope to see you there!
“Law of 2 Feet Applies to Open Space Events, BarCamps, Product Camps and Unconferences.”
“Briefly stated, this law says that every individual has two feet, and must be prepared to use them. Responsibility for a successful outcome in any Open Space Event resides with exactly one person — each participant. Individuals can make a difference and must make a difference. If that is not true in a given situation, they, and they alone, must take responsibility to use their two feet, and move to a new place where they can make a difference. This departure need not be made in anger or hostility, but only after honoring the people involved and the space they occupy. By word or gesture, indicate that you have nothing further to contribute, wish them well, and go and do something useful.”
Harrison Owen, founder of Open Space Technology (OST)
