TorCamp is experimenting collectively with new channels of real-time (chat) collaboration while simultaneously trying to conduct business and plan future events and advocacy with city politics etc.
Here I am in 3 skype conversations, 2 gtalk, a few msn, gmail and a campfire conversation with about 40 people.
The exact same 40 people mind you.
So far this experiment is somewhere between a brilliant insight into the new collaboration — or a complete disaster. staying tuned.
