The next BrainJams event, BrainJams30Jan2006, takes place this coming Monday, January 30th at the DC Improv in Washington DC. The first two local BrainJams events were such a success that organizers Chris Heuer and Kristie Wells have decided to expand BrainJams beyond the Bay Area with their first East Coast event. More info can be found on the BrainJams wiki.
A BrainJams event is an unconference which combines knowledge networking and conversations in open spaces. We strive to bring people together from Non-profits, Technology, Business, the Arts and Government to share our insights and experiences to accelerate the pace of positive change and innovation in the world. The organizing principle of each event is separate from the format. While each BrainJams event can focus on different topics, the principal focus of our conversations at present is on how real people are using emerging social media tools (i.e. Web 2.0, citizen journalism, blogs, podcasts, social bookmarks, open collaboration, etc.).
BrainJams returns to the Bay Area next month with BrainJams25Feb2006 in Berkeley.
