Proposals to the MCN 2010 formal conference program are no longer being accepted, but you can still propose an un-conference session. If you are not familiar with un-conferences, the concept is explained here: http://mcn2010.pbworks.com/Slow+Un-conference
And you can propose your session here:
Two unconference sessions will run in parallel with the formal program at all times from Oct 28-30.
The draft conference program is here: http://mcn2010.pbworks.com/Conference-Program

Would it be possible to include on this, the Front Page, where the conference will be held/meeting?

Hi Tom, and anyone else who may be wondering: This is actually the Front Page of just the conference planning wiki; all general information about MCN 2010 (conference location, registration, etc.) is on the MCN website, where a good starting place is:


Hope this helps!

I've been thinking about handing out an evaluation survey after my workshop--by the time people fill out the survey at the end of the conference, I won't otherwise get feedback.

But, of course, I'm also teaching my subject (project management, in this case) from an Agile perspective, so it really won't do to think out a whole long form. I am reminded, instead, of Avinash Kaushick's "three essential questions" that he uses for a website survey: http://www.kaushik.net/avinash/2007/04/the-three-greatest-survey-questions-ever.html

So, I am going to put a variant of the following on the whiteboard (or my last slide)--note that it includes a variant on "question 4":

1. Why did you take today's workshop?
2. Do you feel that you got what you were looking for?
3. If not, why not?
4. Would you recommend this workshop to a colleague?

If I can get a few people to anonymously fill that out, it would be great. Anyone else doing a workshop interested in trying the same?

You know, we =really= needed a notice board or equivalent--some place where people could get info (and someone to make sure stuff was also updated online, a sort of "changes/notices" twitter or RSS feed"). I am inspired to post this as I try to think of good ways to get the word out that I'd like to share a cab to the airport this afternoon....
