the unconference meets the hivemind

Binary Bonsai on tech conferences as springboards for interaction: ” I see someone, read their nametag and Google them. ‘Excuse me, you’re X, right? I love your work, listen, I have something you might be interested in’. When machines become more portable and this technology more ubiquitous /easy to use, things are going to become very interesting.”
Susan sez: Consider not only how search and social media tools power this post, but intellectual stimulation–perhaps the new unconference is about people who really want to share ideas, not just network.
