BarCamp is an tech UN-conference, open to all.  Web 2.0 topics are addressed in presentations chosen and presented by participants.  To steal a line from Forrest Gump:  BarCamp is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you are going to get.  Topics could range from software tricks, blogging, development,  social media, or e-marketing, to the future of the online experience.  One thing for sure – there will be lots of lively conversation and networking in a very friendly atmosphere, all for a very small price.

barcamp memphis lunawebWhat in the world is BarCamp? It’s an unconference, generally driven by Web 2.0 topics. Unconference? An unconference because content is determined by the attendees, who present, discuss, and learn about specific technologies, trends and gadgets. Attendees vote on the day’s sessions based on offerings submitted by other attendees. Sessions may take the form of short presentations, panels, Q and A sessions with experts and thought leaders, or roundtable discussions.

If you are on the cutting edge of the new technology and social media,  want to hone your skills and knowledge, or if you are trying to get a handle on what platforms and approaches are right for you, you NEED to be at BarCamp on Saturday.

See you there!

Tennessee’s first REBar Camp captured the spirit of the movement

BarCamps are user-generated conferences, with the sessions an presenters/facilitators determined on the day of the conference.  Bar camps are participatory and geared to the needs and skills of those who attend.  The essence of the Bar Camp movement was captured in this week’s REBar Camp Nashville.  REBar Camps are real estate oriented, and while I have attended Bar Camps that seemed a bit over-choreographed, this event was pure user generated content, and the sessions I facilitated and attended were highly participatory.  Very little of the actual event, other than the blank schedule grid, and the individual venues was pre-planned.  This sharing of ideas is a truly enriching experience.  At any given time there were up to 10 simultaneous sessions in progress, geared to all levels of expertise in real estate marketing and tech.

Brian Copeland (@nashvillebrian) deserves the credit for putting this event together with the assistance of many volunteers and a solid group of sponsors.  Sponsors? Yes.  A commercial atmosphere?  Definitely not.  I was fortunate enough to be able to present on a couple of topics, and I attended a number of sessions, but the power of the REBar Camp is in the networking:  the folks you meet with, socialize with, and share ideas with are one big family, as you can see if you look at any of the attendee’s Facebook profiles.

Kudos to Brian and all the great folks who attended Tennessee’s first Real Estate Bar Camp!
