Sorry for the blogging drought. As spring picks up, and people begin to open their windows and run outside, digital interaction seems to take its rightful place as a complement.
So in that case, I’m not too sorry for the drought.
Just this past weekend, close to 200 people came to Area Fifteen, the small business incubator in Charlotte, for Barcamp Charlotte 3; the unconference that brings some of the brightest minds together.
From discussions about Google, mobile applications being created by Yahoo, to comparing a marketing team to a SWAT team (shameless plug, deal with it), BarCamp Charlotte 3 was a fun learning experience.
But don’t fret if you missed BarCamp Charlotte 3. There are more events that will aim at your creative and entrepreneurial spirit.
1. Charlotte Start-Up Weekend
People gather together during this weekend can create a company. A great place to network, and show others what you got!
From the same folks that bring you “TED Talks”, TEDx is the free, localized version. A conference that is designed to bring innovative thinkers and doers together who want to make a positive impact on Charlotte. You must go to the website and apply for an invite though. Do so quickly if interested.
A note to the interested: these events are created for people who want to DO stuff. No pedestal service, no soliloquies…nothing. Show up, and Do Work.
