Go To Seattle Mind Camp: Nov 5-6

A group of friends are putting together a Bar Camp inspired gathering here in Seattle that is meant to bring together a group of 150 Seattle's thinkers and doers.

Here's a description from the site:

Seattle Mind Camp is a self-organizing, digitally minded, entrepreneur-driven, overnight Seattle confab.

What: A weekend, 24-hour, multi-track event. Think huge space with breakout rooms, broadband Wi-Fi, projectors, white boards - and you.
Who: 150 of Seattle's forward thinkers: techies, entrepreneurs, executives, gamers, artists, and anyone else with a great idea.
When: Mind Camp will take place on November 5-6
Why: Why not?


If you're a Seattleite that's been wanting to meet more people doing interesting things, you should go. Register here.

Quite unfortunately, I have an out-of-town wedding that weekend and can't attend, but I'm sure it's going to be a blast.
