Minneapolis is becoming a much cooler place to be a techie geek, startup business sort of guy. Thanks to the hard work of a very small group of people last year Minneapolis had it's first ever minnebar. MinneBar is a BarCamp event, also known as an "unconference". The idea is simple, a bunch of people of like interests (in this case all things geek) convene on one spot and self-organize into a worthwhile conference. It's like wiki meets conference. Anyway, the 2nd edition of the more frequent and shorter minnedemo has been scheduled for December 11th at Acadia Cafe.
Minnedemo is different than minnebar in that it's shorter, somewhat more social, and features short demos rather than longer form presentations. I missed the first one due to a business trip, but I'm definitely going to be at the 2nd edition!
Check it out, sign up, and meet some great people. Plus, Road Sign Math is a sponsor. :-)
