A few folks have suggested space for unconference sessions. Let them organize the unconference on the fly. IBM would just provide the space....and coffee.

Coffee is controlled by the Disneybots. That's not up to IBM. However, I'm not sure if there would be something against someone setting up a coffee maker in their room, filling some carafes, and making it generally available. :-D

You provide more information on your blog ( { Link } )about this, which is much more descriptive than what you have posted here. Thanks for that post.

I think that, in some regards, the BoFs fulfill part of the unconference rules. However, thinking logistically, how would you pull this off? You need to gather a group of people together to determine the agenda and then the times. At Lotusphere, that might be like herding cats. Further, you need to publish the times/locations. Finally, I think that the only day(s) that this would be feasible would be Saturday and/or Sunday. After that, things ramp up quite quickly.

I like the idea, but I am having a hard time working through the specifics.
