I enjoyed reading Elaine Robert's views on NECC. Elaine works with Pearson and is working her way into all of the emerging Web 2.0 trends with a thoroughness of a researcher. I've been very impressed with her. Elaine says:

"While at NECC I learned there is an interesting bifurcation of attitudes, but that's true in any industry or any technology or trend. There are the early adopters who think they are the experts and that everyone should go to them for advice, information, whatever. Then there are early adopters who invite everyone into the pool, but also invite the newbies to explore on their own. This latter group of early adopters, the non-divas, are the mentors and encouragers. They are the folks who know they don't have all of the answers and are eager to have others come on board to explore their brave new worlds."

Wow! I aspire to be the latter.

Notes on the wiki presentation that I did with Adam Frey -- I'm saving all of these and also want to link to those who took the time to link and write about the sessions that I was a part of. Thank you for such a great outline!

For those of you who don't twitter but would like to follow what twitterers are saying about NECC -- this is one of the hashtags that may be used. To make this work for you, you must be following @hashtags and then use #necc in your title -- I like it sans date, but am finding some people using #necc08 and #necc2008. I'll probably use #necc to save tweetspace.

The NECC fringe festival is going to be fun! This is an example of collaborative meet ups and the new sort of "unconference" that is popping up around many of the innovative conferences.

  • NECC 2.0:" The Conference within a Conference. A "Fringe" Festival for NECC. Three days collaboratively created and scheduled by the participants, held in the open "lounge" areas.
