Minnebar 2 Wrap-Ups
Garrick's wrap at MNteractive.
Tim Elliott will have podcasts of some of the sessions soon.
Scott Dier posted about my session (Broadband initiatives, Net Neutrality, municipal Wi-Fi) and then added some thoughtful commentary.
The Minnebar site has more links to posts and pictures..

[Update. More food for the masses: a cold-cut plate. Minnebar took care of us.]
Almost 400 hundred people signed up for Minnebar. No clear idea how many are here but there should have some idea post-conference via registrations and business cards.
The space is good for the crowd with plenty of spaces for the sessions and for ad hoc discussions. Many thanks to Ben, Luke, and Dan.
Wireless access is donated by ipHouse and it's blazing with downloads around 3Mbps.
Noise is a problem. It's hard to hear many of the presentations and ambient talk is everywhere. A PA system at each main presentation space would be great with wireless miking so you can catch audience questions. Maybe they can score a sponsor next year to offer something like that.
We did run out of pizza. I think we need to enforce a one-piece-only directive in the first time around so everyone gets something.
Overall, I'll give it 4.5 (of 5) stars. Good job!

Minnesota's second Minnebar Unconference will take place April 21 in St. Paul's Lowertown at the Railroader Building, 235 E. Sixth St. Sign up at the wiki.
We were crowded last year at Catalyst Studio (thank you Catalyst!). The Railroader has more room and two floors.
No audience or presenters at an unconference, just participants and discussion leaders. List sessions you're interested in both leading and attending at the wiki.
Watch for an April 20 icebreaker. Last year it was at Acadia and it gets my vote for this year too.
