In May, we had a wonderful Tinderbox Weekend in Boston. Now, Tinderbox Weekend heads West!
Tinderbox Weekend San Francisco
Who'll be there?
We're expecting a small gathering of Tinderbox enthusiasts from throughout the country -- and indeed the world. Some will be Tinderbox beginners, some will be experts. Mark Bernstein, Tinderbox's designer, will lead sessions and will be available throughout for discussions.
Do I Need To Register Now?
Yes, please -- as soon as you can. We ran out of space in Boston, we'll probably run short again. The sooner we know who is coming, the better we can plan!
What if I can't possibly come this weekend?
We're going to offer a corresponding membership to people who simply cannot make it in person. Think of this as a sign of support for Tinderbox.
We'll send you handouts -- either on paper or CD -- and perhaps we'll be able to set up an electronic link during part of the meeting to field your questions. It'll be much better to attend, but if you simply can't make it, a corresponding membership might be nice.
What topics will be covered?
The program will doubtless change many times over the coming weeks: send your suggestions!
Saturday: Techniques Day
- Getting Started with Tinderbox
- Making Notes: Maps, Views, Adornments
- Analyzing Notes: Agents, Prototypes, and Emerging Stucture
- Sharing Notes: templates and the Web
Sunday: Frontiers and Futures
- Scripts and styles: exotic techniques
- Outside the box: Tinderbox XML tools
- Technology preview: what's coming

Special Deal for Alumni?
Yes! Attendees from Tinderbox Weekend Boston may register for half price. Alumni of any eNarrative conference receive a 25% discount. Please mention the alumni discount under special instructions if applicable.
Where will this happen?
We're looking at some great venues in San Francisco. We'll do our best to make sure the site is easily accessible by public transportation.
We start at 10am on Saturday (registration and coffee at 9:30), which will give travelers plenty of time to catch a morning shuttle. We'll wrap up by 3:30pm on Sunday, so people returning to the East coast and Europe can catch Sunday evening flights.
Snacks and nifty handouts. Probably some exclusive sample files. Several excellent and inexpensive restaurants serve lunch nearby.
Where should I stay?
We're working to set up a hotel deal. Call Eastgate at (617) 924-9044 or (800) 562-1638 for advice or special needs.
Can I connect?
We expect to have WiFi connectivity, so bring your laptops!
Speakers and program subject to change without notice. Cancellations received prior to August 15 will receive a refund, less the price of a corresponding membership. No refunds after August 15. Multiple attendees from the same organization receive a 25% discount.
