A DemoCamp is a lighter-weight style of un-conference. A DemoCamp lasts only a few hours on a weekday evening. Unlike a BarCamp, you don’t have to present. You are welcome to come along and give feedback to the people who do (or just watch and absorb if you don’t feel like talking). Demos should have roughly a 2 minute introduction, 8 minute demonstration, and 5 minutes for questions. 15 minutes total. There are 5 presentation slots available.

So basically these unconferences are about the most fun a geek can have with his or her clothes on. MY goal is to get some non-geeks to start going to these, get some multi-disciplinary cross-pollination going on, Integration Research style. But it appears my ideas for such are still unpalatable. Even though everyone jokes about the nerds being the rich, successful ones in real life, we’re all still a little scared they’re gonna bust some quantum whoop ass super soaker on us should we get too close.

So now that I’ve practically dared you to, who wants to drive up to the northern climes with me for DemoCamp?
