archaeogaming unconference – logistics


The #archaeogaming unconference will take place here: at 11 am, EST, June 1st; y’all are welcome to throw together other spaces (hangouts, skype, collaborative docs, etherpads, what have you) to extend or push the idea further. Ideas that have come in so far can be found/voted on here:

In terms of how the day will unravel (unroll? play out?) I’m imagining say 3 sessions with 3 breakout rooms, at 45 minutes each, 10 minutes between for refreshment. Unlike in-person unconferences, I think trying to agree a schedule on the morning might be too difficult, so I’d take the top voted topics, slot them into a google spreadsheet-schedule template, say next monday – and then people can leave comments on the the desired layout. I’d leave that open for the week, then adjust/publish the schedule that weekend, according to what seems like the majority will.

Then, morning of, I’ll remind/repost the URL to the unhangout, and we’d be off to the races. The unhangout can be broadcast via Youtube too (though I’m not entirely sure how that happens or what the channel will be – guess I should go and see which of my many accounts is plumbed into what service).

Sound good?

Update May 25th: proposed schedule may be commented on here.

  1. I was hoping to join in with a short Twine paper, but I’m on vacation in Italy all next week, and back at my day-job on Monday, so I’ll have to give this one a miss. Hope it goes well.
