The Portland meetups are intended to be a little less intense and more frequent than a full BarCamp Portland event. The intent is to get a group of cool people interested in technology together to chat over drinks on the fourth Thursday of every month. Anyone working in high-tech is welcome to attend. Conversations usually range from wikis to open source to blogs to who knows what!
I’m not really sure what this is. Even after reading this:
inVerge 2007 is an immersive 2 to 4-day experience starting on Sept. 6th in Portland, OR USA that focuses on emerging interactive convergence [invergence] dynamics manifesting as various global business trends including: media platform integration, brand integration, collective intelligence, participatory culture and mass collaboration.
But it has plenty of buzzwords, and that’s always good. Isn’t it?
In any case, it’s happening in Portland, September 6. And paying $495 will surely lead you to a deeper understanding of the concept than I’ve been able to garner with my quick gloss and snarky comments.
