We had a great turnout from Orlando, Tampa and Jacksonville folks down in Coconut Grove yesterday, and a substantial number of presentations by our regular cast of characters. Gregg Pollack, Rob Dempsey, Bryan Conzone, Brian Feldman, Eric Marden, Tim Rosenblatt and myself (just to name a few) all took the podium at various times throughout the day.

A huge thanks to Alex DeCarvalho, who seemed to have single-handedly pulled this unconference together in a matter of days.

FL Creatives 19: History of Florida Creatives

Download Pecha Kucha Video

This is an abbreviated history of the first few years of Florida Creatives - including some stuff that inspired me to create the first Happy Hour in Orlando, and the folks who were very instrumental in getting the group started and keeping things healthy.

Several of the events and people surrounding the first BlogOrlando brought about many of the things we hold dear today, such as:

BlogOrlando was really the event that kicked Florida Creatives out of the minds of the collective and into reality. Don't believe me? Watch this video. Yours truly has the full explanation of how it all went down.

Sunday will start at 10:00 a.m. and end at 5:30 p.m. and will focus on New Media.

Unlike traditional meetings, a BarCamp, is what is known as an unconference where people interested in a wide range of technologies come together to participate, teach and learn. The format does not have scheduled speakers. Instead, the morning of the BarCamp, everyone proposes the sessions they would like to have covered. Those sessions are put on a schedule and groups form and start an intense session of learning. Everyone who attends a BarCamp is expected to teach and to participate. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join.

People who attend should be prepared to share with barcampers, and when they leave be prepared to share it with the world.
