  1. After the Sapphire BPX day, there has been some email discussion about how the event could be improved for the TechEd version of the BPX Community Day. Marilyn Pratt and other organizers are already pretty far down the path of finalizing the lineup for the next BPX day at TechEd 2008, but there is still time to provide some input. I wanted to take a bit of feedback from my email to Marilyn on the day and post it publicly here, hoping to spur some more comments. In a nutshell, the essence of my take was that I thought the day went very well, but could have been enhanced by a more interactive component in the afternoon - essentially bringing more of a BPX hands-on flavor to the day. Of course, it is understood that the space we were in at Sapphire was not very conducive to smaller breakout sessions.

    With that in mind, here are a few of my comments I sent to Marilyn: "my idea would be, at some point in that mid-afternoon, to figure that folks have absorbed enough about BPXers and now it's time to start acting like BPXers! So, perhaps break folks down into a few smaller workgroups of some kind, each tasked with a particular brainstorm of project, and perhaps they could, at the end of the breakout sessions, even post something live on BPX into a wiki or forum thread or blog. I think this would be more interactive, get people's creative thinking going, and also get across the real-time potential of collaborating on BPX, perhaps better than a panel could.

    Of course, if there were a handful of folks who paid for that whole day who just wanted to gather information and not be involved in an interactive portion of the program, perhaps there could be a small group presentation for them on some aspect of BPX if they felt they wanted to continue soaking up information.

    Then, the group could come back together as one group, report their findings or progress or real-time posting, and that would lead into a brief wrap."

    So, for what it's worth, those are my initial comments.
