This show is OVER (for now)!

It happened on June 4, 2008 in Toronto. We’ll be documenting it and talking about future efforts right here over the next few days. For a little more on what it’s all about, check out:

What we talked about …

The Toronto Open Everything was a tasty cocktail of an event: featuring insipirational talks (10 in one hour), unconferency conversations and a great dinner party all mixed up together. Here’s what happened:

  1. What’s open? Mark Surman gave us a quick tour of open things happening everywhere, followed by a ‘what the heck is open?’ convo amongst participants.Speaking notes on Mark’s blog.
  2. Open Toronto. Nine high speed presentations by Toronto people and projects that have baked openness into the DNA of their everyday work. Included talks by: software geeks; artists; a lawyer; a community organizer; and salad geek. Video of these talks now online here including:
    1. Creative Commons 101 speedgeek video. A quick primer on how to open license your content in Canada by Marcus Bornfreund.
    2. Open Salad speedgeek video. Using open source techniques to make lunch and meet new friends while you are at the office by Dan Howard.
    3. Unconferencing public policy speedgeek video. Applying the BarCamp model to redesign an urban transportation network by Mark Kuznicki. 
    4. Jane’s Walk. Toronto as user generated content. Jane Farrow gives port-mortem on Jane’s Walk: over 60 neighbourhood tours led by everyday Torontonians, all self-organized. It’s like 60 living blogs with sneakers.
    5. Intro to Ubuntu. Find out how simple and fun it is to open source your computer by Myles Braithwaite.
    6. linuxcaffe. David J Patrick talks about how "open everything" works in a retail/ restaurant setting.
  3. Case study: classroom in the (open source) community. David Humphrey from Seneca College provided an under-the-hood look at a class where where students work hands on in the Mozilla Firefox community. Then Dave was interviewed by Nora Young, Tonya Surman and Michele Perras. Notes by Amanda Yilmaz here
  4. Bootstrapping an Open Source organization out of triviality.
    Richard Dice president
    described his approaches to change The Perl Foundation from a frustrated volunteer
    organization into something that can affect large-scale positive change. Notes by Ryan Kelln here.
  5. Mapping open. We tried to create a digital map of what’s open out there. We got some okay input, but mostly didn’t make much progress. 

All in all a good day. New friends. Alot learned. If you want to see what it looked like, there are lots of good pictures online already. More coming.

Of course, there were things we could have done way better … including a longer day and more open web hosting sessions. Mark and David have written term papers and debrief notes here to help with organizing future events.

So what is so different about minifigures. They offered knowledgeable service. Prepare yourself for this idea: You should learn more about me. Do you want to get a bargain? This requires immediate action. This wasn’t a full grown idea. This can be one of the biggest blunders with minifigures if you don’t do it correctly. This is not a scam. It’s time to take preventive measures. The basic gist is to simply get minifigures. That’s why I like it. How about mini figs? This is a assumption about gaining experience with mini figs. That cost me an arm and leg. I have one additional thought for you. This is how to buy the right minifigures for you. The people who are going to ultimately use minifigures aren’t like that.
