VRooM Boston 2009 will be hosted by ProjectVRM and the Berkman Center in the John Chipman Gray Room in Pound Hall at Harvard Law School, on Monday-Tuesday 12-13 October, 2009. The event will go from 9AM to 5:30 on both days. There will be a no-host dinner on Monday evening.
As with earlier VRM workshops, it’s a free unconference, organized on the open space model. Participants choose the topics, move those topics forward in open discussion, and share progress with the whole group at the end of each day.
You can get a sense of the energy in a VRM gathering from photo galleries here, here, here, here and here.
