The Friday afternoon of NetHui will be an unconference, with 15 sessions available. This is a great opportunity to work on ideas that have come up during the event, turn discussion into action, or go off on another tangent (keep it about the Internet though!).

For those that don't know, the usual unconference approach in New Zealand is in BarCamp style, with topics proposed and topic initiators/facilitators volunteering immediately before the sessions begin, an expectation of participation, and a lot of enthusiasm and openness.

Note that we're very open to people volunteering to help run this part of the event. It should be blast!

I'm volunteering 🙂

It would be very cool indeed if a couple of other folk who are used to unconferences / bar camps could stick their hands up as well.

Am planning to come along to the unconference. Hoping to organize a session around collaborative use of SlideSpeech. Here is a sample -- a summary of the first two speakers from the Wednesday plenary session:

Unconference topic public broadcasting
The last 7 months has seen the demise of 2 of New Zealand's broadcasting channels in a legislative and financial environment that is not sympathetic to public broadcasting. In December nationally broadcast community owned channel Triangle Stratos closed after 4 years of national broadcasting and on June 30 TVNZ's public broadcast channel TVNZ7 closed down. National Radio is facing its 4th year of fixed budgets and Maori TV is now the only publicly funded broadcast TV channel. The next few years will see broadcasting increasingly delivered through the medium of the web. How can New Zealanders ensure that our new broadcast environment allows us to be citizens as well as consumers? Public broadcasting can identify and provide access to great New Zealand content and the best of international content that informs educates and entertains. It reflects us to ourselves and is an important conduit for national conversations to occur. How can internet NZ deliver on its promise that the web is for everyone if the available capacity is tied up in contractual relationships between ISPs and commercial content providers? Arising from the Save TVNZ7 campaign is an initiative to set up a campaign for better public broadcasting. NetHui's conference attendees are an ideal community to help set direction and provide technical advice to the yet to be formally named organisation.

This post makes the case for this issue to be a bar-camp topic that will be compelling and ground breaking.

Cheers Jan
