Last week, Havi and I attended She's Geeky along with Erin Malone, and my daughters, Cady and Grace Tippins. She's Geeky is styled along the lines of a typical unconference, with participants proposing a schedule of sessions at the start of the day.
At our session, we showed participants how to play the Social Mania Game, a social patterns card game that allows you to build products, gain points for great features, and eventually 'pitch' your completed product to the player representing a VC. The game was fun, of course, but the feedback we got was the great benefit. Erin and Christian Crumlish created Social Mani to teach people about social patterns and as a complement to their book, Designing Social Interfaces. Since the game is still in beta, some of the suggestions made at She's Geeky may make it into future revisions.
