  • InfoCamp Seattle 2007
  • We are creating an environment where professionals and students are mingling, exchanging ideas and rubbing elbows… help contribute to the community. The philosophy of this event is “no spectators!” Everyone in attendance will be encouraged to participate, attendees should come prepared to present on a topic of interest regardless of how developed the ideas are. Whiteboards, projectors, and screens will be provided as attendees bring laptops, PowerPoint slides, posters or just some wacky ideas to present in order to generate a discussion with the community. This is a great opportunity for attendees to get feedback and ideas from a group of people with similar interests and create connections within their professional community. A keynote and plenary speaker will be predetermined by the event committee, but all other presentations will be given just-in-time by InfoCamp attendees. Our keynote speaker will be Nick Finck, the Publisher of Digital Web Magazine and Director of User Experience at Blue Flavor, our plenary speaker is Bob Boiko of Metatorial Services Inc and a faculty member of the University of Washington Information School.
