MashupCamp--a new kind of get-together | CNET News.com

MashupCamp--a new kind of get-together | CNET News.com

This is totally weird and kind of cool. A meeting with no attendance fees, no schedule as such, a whole lot of nothing, in fact, except a lot of people there.

It starts with a session where people with different mashups - I presume a mashup of different software applications; the term is not explained in the article - have 30 seconds to pitch their ideas to the crowd.

Then comes the impromptu scheduling. Who wants to lead a discussion? Come up on stage, tell us briefly what it is, we'll see if there are enough people interested and then claim your time and space and away you go.

Very, very interesting.

It is interesting. And the flip side is a bit sad, too. It’s like saying that we lack so much time and spontaneity in our lives now that we need an event where spontaneity and disorder are built in to the programme. (Or am I being unnecessarily negative about this?)

Negative, I would've thought so, but your comments definitely give me pause for thought. It ties in with some other stuff I've been hearing, reading, seeing lately. Stay tuned for a post on this!
