Discussion Startup emails
I asked on Twitter today, "Wonder if ALA should/can have more attendee-proposed and vetted events, a la DrupalCamp: http://drupal.org/node/519100"
Some people responded favorably, including several of you. And this is the direction I'd like to see ALA heading in, so #makeithappen and all that.
I'm willing to put some work into this, but I can't do it all myself, which is where the rest of you come in :)
Things I'm willing to do: set up the tech infrastructure allowing people to propose/discuss/vote on sessions; rally the troops; cheerlead.
Things I'm not willing to do: figure out the ALA bureaucratic magic required; logistical planning for events beyond some correspondence with attendees; anything before October.
And I know there's some kind of grassroots program structure, but I don't know how it works or whether it already does what I'm thinking of here. Maybe one of you does. Because that should be checked first -- maybe we just need to publicize it!
Anyway. Who's in?
