Here are some of the sessions that caught my eye at this year's Mind Camp. I couldn't attend these all, but those I could attend were great. I especially enjoyed the Living the Second Life session, learning loads about this upcoming nation.

Oh, I want to find out what happened at BlueDot's session. Any contact info you can share with me (email fine if you don't want to post emails.)

I wonder how this knits in with your recent post on 2.0 adoption patterns, something I've also been pondering on my blog.

So sorry I had to miss mind camp. :-(

BTW, I tried to register on CS so I could get an email if you replied, but I got an error. Tell Dave Burke to make his system work (Grin - Dave is a friend. I'm just being silly)

By the way, Joe Goldberg ( and I co-presented the ruby on rails session.  I meant to go to the lucid dreaming one, but got sucked into werewolf.  How was it?

Aaron and I went to the Lucid Dreaming talk and got super tired because of all the talk about sleep. That's when we got the sleeping bags. They talked for 3 hours so I guess it was good.

Loved the Singularity session.  Would be great to find out what you think once you are done with the book.
