Other Snippets of Wisdom We Learned

  • Don’t run out of coffee if you can avoid it

  • If the press is interested, keep them out of everybody’s faces

  • Make sure everyone feels welcome and knows what to do - especial domain experts

  • Have a code of conduct

  • Keep communication channels open, especially between Baggers & Seeders as they’ll need to share a lot of information. We used Slack for this and it worked pretty nicely

  • A large proportion of attendees will be vegetarian than some other events - they’re there because they care about the environment
