We don’t have all of the details hashed out yet, but we do know that we’d like all of your input on the kind of gathering you’d like to see. In a general theme, we do want to make an event that’s more open, with shorter lightning-style talks, and more of an opportunity to meet and talk to other software founders. But other than that, the specifics are open to your suggestions and contributions, so please, use this thread to let us know your thoughts and ideas.
1) When is this conference?
We’re aiming to bring the conference sometime between late-September, to mid-November of 2014. But it may not happen at all unless we see that there’s a strong enough interest from the community. The conference has a mailing list where you can sign up - it’s at http://conference.bootstrapped.fm - signing up for that is the best way to voice your interest in the conference.
2) Does this thing have a name?
No! We tried for months to come with something non-cheesy, and failed miserably. Naming is hard! If you have a good idea for a name, please post your suggestions.
UPDATE: We’ve decided to stick with The Bootstrapped.fm Conference for now.
3) Where are you planning to have this conference?
Don’t know yet. Maybe your town? Maybe some place you always wanted to visit? Post your suggestion and let us know! (Some place warm!)
