“Let A Thousand Models Bloom” by Thomas Jerome Baker

See on Scoop.itAuthorship

This is the first book about the unconference movement that seeks to address the question: Is the unconference dead?It looks at BarCamp, Edcamp, Educamp, TeachMeet and weighs in on hybrid events – traditional conferences that include an unconference track. Thomas, himself a Co-Founder & Co-Organiser of EdCamp Santiago, reassures the potential unconference organiser that organising a perfect unconference is a lot less complicated than it seems…  

“…a perfect unconference … would be a jam session, a moveable feast. Improvisation has signal, it has pattern, it has structure, it has plans, but it also has the freedom to say or play what it seems right to say or play at that moment. 

Whatever works is what I want to be free to do, what the work of the “un” ought to accomplish, to make working an always-provisional, always-scrutinized, always-open value. Let a thousand models bloom, and then cross-pollinate.” (Timothy Burke, February 9, 2012, “Easily Distracted”)
