Conferences always offer an agenda. Speakers, times and locations for folks to sit and listen come in full color brochures. I grew up in the day of the "Un-Cola." The idea behind the marketing campaign for 7up intended to say this is not your "Father’s Cola." The Emergent Gathering is something of an "un-conference." Meals are shared. Responsibilities shared. The "breakout sessions" are posted by those who want to lead, have something to offer, looking for others to think about a topic, or tease out a book idea. I am out with my brother, Mark and Spencer among others at the Gathering at Glorieta, New Mexico.
May post more later.
