My wife Stacy and I recently attended our first "Edcamp." Edcamps are a type of attendee-driven tech conference. The first 30 minutes or so of the Edcamp is spent with attendees filling out a shared Google doc with topics they'd like more info on. Then, if attendees see a requested topic that they have some expertise in, they put themselves and the topic on another shared Google doc, the agenda. 

I must admit I was dubious about the format. I was afraid nobody would be brave enough to admit they needed help with anything, and it's also afraid everyone would be too humble to think they could present anything worthwhile. I was wrong! It ended up being one of the best conferences I've attended.
