MinneDemo on Ice
Here's the email that Dan Grigsby just sent out:
Mark your calendars: the holiday edition of MinneDemo will take place on Monday, December 11th starting at 6:30pm.
We've arranged to have the Acadia Cafe (http://www.acadiacafe.com/), located on Nicollet Avenue in Minneapolis' "Eat Street" district, close their doors to the public and make both their stage/theater and the cafe/pub space available exclusively for MinneDemo attendees on the evening of Monday, December 11th.
The Acadia can accommodate a larger audience, provides us with separate spaces for presentations and networking, offers a nice menu and a really diverse set of beers and wines all in a non-corporate setting. The place has soul, and lets us address the valid gripe about not being able to hear the presenters over the chatter.
As before, we've arranged for sponsors to chip in for food and -- new this time -- drinks for the early arrivers. We're still working out the details for the menu and drinks; we'll follow up with another email when it's all squared away. Thanks to ipHouse ( http:// www.iphouse.net ), Mosquito Mole Multiworks ( http://www.mmmultiworks.com ), Kinetic Data ( http://www.kineticdata.com ), Road Sign Math ( http://www.roadsignmath.com ) and New Counsel ( http://www.newcounsel.com ) for their sponsorship.
The presentation format will be unchanged from the previous: six 15 minute presentations. As always, it's free to present and spots are available on a first come first serve basis on the wiki. Grab one if you're interested.
Please RSVP at the wiki: http://barcamp.org/MinneDemo
