Live from NTC: The art of the Unconference

Allegiance Group

So when I saw the “unconference” on Open Data and APIs, I was all in. What is an “unconference” anyway, and what place does it have at a conference. Now that I’ve received my education in the Unconference, I’m hooked. At an “unconference,” the agenda is set by the attendees ten minutes. At an “unconference,” the attendees are the experts, leading and following in discussions of their choosing.

My only problem with N-TEN is the vendor to non-profit IT worker ratio at the NTC. Bill made it fairly clear that the NTC is primarily a product of vendor contributions to N-TEN.

This morning, NetSquared hosted a special unconference at NTC on open data. It was a fascinating discussion that touched both on many of the reasons why nonprofits are taking a look at data sharing and on why consequential data sharing can sometimes be challenging or unfeasible for nonprofits.
