NetHui South is halfway between a traditional conference and an unconference or barcamp.
Like a traditional conference, NetHui South has a pre-agreed agenda. However, much like an unconference, people “participate” rather than passively “attend”. Everyone’s views are valued; everyone is encouraged to fully participate.
NetHui South isn’t a conference run by some faceless national organisation and we’ve had too much of that in Christchurch already. It’s a collaborative, multistakeholder gathering where we all set the agenda.
