Post-Its from BarCampPortland

Selena Deckelmann has come back from BarCampPortland with copies of every Post-It on the topic selection board. The topic selection board at an unconference like a BarCamp is where people write on a Post-It a topic they'd like to see presented, and put it on a board for all to see. Whichever topics people vote for are the topics that are presented.



Scanning through the photoset on Flickr is fascinating, as these often are. Topics range from Pirates Paying Artists to WordPress as CMS to How to lie with statistics to Should we replace Congress with a wiki?



Also fascinating to see how widespread Twitter has become, with half the Post-Its leaving @usernames as contact information.



Makes me want to start up a Bar Camp Chicago. And move to Portland.
