What is VONCamp all about?


For years Jeff Pulver has been running executive summits and other get togethers with the idea of having a free exchange of ideas.  This dialogue has been at the heart of VON.  These two tracks are intended to pump up the volume of the dialogue. 


The Innovators Forum is a series of sessions that show case companies in our more traditional format.  However dialogue in these sessions is encouraged.  The VONCamp Unconference is harder to describe,  because it gives people a chance to self identify as a speaker.  At the present time there are 12 speaking slots. If you've got something you want to discuss that's outside the formal program, VONCamp Unconference is the place to do it. We also have a SpeedDating session.   


VONCamp Unconference Rules


Here are the rules:

  1. There are no rules. 
  2. Everyone is equal. Everyone is a rockstar. 
  3. Give back to the conference by participating actively. "Active participation" might mean giving a presentation, helping with a presentation, blogging or podcasting the event, or whatever other creative ways.  While everyone is encouraged to lead a session, there are only twelve slots available.
  4. All sessions must obey the Law of 2 Feet - if you're not getting what you want out of the session, you can and should walk out and do something else. Hopefully you will walk the show floor!

Proposed Topics

Got something you want to discuss?  Add it here. 

  • [Alec Saunders] I'll lead a session on social networking, business, and voice, if there's interest.
    [Thomas Howe] Jay Phillips and I are going to do a mashup in real time if you want to see how they're done.
    [Thomas Howe] Jon Arnold has asked me to debate Andrew Frame from Ooma about the future of telephony services
    [Carl Ford] I would like David Isenberg and Gordon Cook to talk about the Lessons is Muni Networks Business Models
    [Carl Ford] Does anyone want to answer my question about whether we get full cost recovery on the Internet's network?
    [Kfir Pravda] I'd love to participate in Alec's session about social networking, and discuss what NOT to do in this space
    [Aswath Rao] I am also interested in social networking. I am interested in discussing how we can add new features to PSTN lines at the user's end (no service provider model). Finally I can lead a session on OpenID and IP Communications. For the session Jon has identified, we should also discuss what is meant by "product". If it is agreeable, I can share my thoughts on this.
    [Jon Arnold] I've peciled in my Ooma segment for Tuesday at 2pm. Dennis Peng will be speaking in Andrew Frame's place.
