Feeling poor since you tightened your startup's belt last quarter? There's a GREAT set of free, community-scheduled sessions for today’s FreeTech unconference at ETech 2009, being held at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose.
The current schedule is pasted below, and we’ve been keeping the FreeTech wiki fairly up to date (thank you Kevin Epstein!!) as new things get posted. As a reminder, all sessions are held in the Valley Room:
- 8:45 to 9:00 AM Open Grid (time to sign up to present a session)
- 9:00 to 9:30 AM “Rewired State: How to hack the government with geeks and beer”
- 9:30 to 10:05 AM “Why not take drugs all the time? Physiology & Identity” (Quinn Norton)
- 10:05 to 10:50 AM “Programmable Environments: Co-Design” (Jennifer Magnolfi, Herman Miller)
- 11:00 to 11:50 PM “Behind the Scenes at the California Academy of Sciences” (Sasha Harris-Cronin)
- 12:00 to 12:40 PM [OPEN SESSION – GRAB IT!]
- 12:40 to 1:05 PM “Hacking Education: Online Fun Learning Tools / Ecosystem” (Hitesh Parashar)
- 1:05 to 1:55 PM “Making and Sharing: Building New Hacker Spaces” (Rose White, City University of New York – Graduate Center / NYC Resistor)
There are a couple of free/sharable spots, feel free to grab one by signing up on-site in front of the Valley Room. Hitesh Parashar will be onsite for the duration to session wrangle and answer your questions. Remember to get the latest on the wiki, since naturally an unconference schedule is subject to change.
Thanks again to everyone who hosted or submitted a session on Wednesday – and if you haven’t yet dropped by, we look forward to having you join in the conversation today!
