The Big Board

People find out what's going on at the Big Board (and, of course, the Big Map to the right of the Board). The Big Board lives outside the registration room in the main dining hall. It shows where, when  and what workshops are actually taking place.  Only major events like the Saturday Night Concert (and meals) are scheduled in advance.  For everything else, the weekend takes shape starting on Friday as people post workshops they will host or want (you can ask for something even if you don't host it).  One of the best parts of the Squeeze-In are these workshops and organized themed jams.  They are never the same and we never know in advance what they'll be.  Instead, we put up this event grid board and people interested in leading (or even asking for) these workships/jams put up a a Post-It note for whatever it they're doing or would like to do in an open slot in the event grid.  Simple...and amazing: interesting things happen all of their own. 

NOTE: if you want to host session, you must get to NESI and reserve for it on the Big Board (or get someone who does come early to do it for you). You can talk about it and plan it with others on si-talk, but isn't official until it's posted on the Board. Since there's no real event schedule printout, one way to "grab a copy" of the scheduled events is just to shoot a picture of it with your camera or cellphone.

This was the Big Board for 2019, which was fun but is past and gone.  Your year will be different.
