Is “un” better?

I love subversion. Yet, I also recognize that conservation is an important task. We cannot simply discard the old just because it is old. With everyone “unschooling” & “unconferencing” I wonder if we even know what we are un-doing or if we are just being trendy. And trends are the enemy of meaningful change.

    My experience with unconferences is that they are mostly very similar to conferences, and really the word makes the most sense if I think of it as being short for “un-scheduled conference.” There is some subversion in the idea that any attendee can give a presentation or start a conversation, but a lot of the good parts of old-style conferences continue.
