Global HQ 2013 in Bangalore!

on Sat, 02/02/2013 - 17:02

We are pleased to announce that the Global HQ of this year's Global Service Jam will be in Bangalore, India, hosted by the Bangalore Jam.

Adam and Markus write:

The Global HQ of the Jam has always been in our home town, with the wonderful Nuremberg Jammers. But the Jam is truly a global event, and we need to reflect that.  We have personally been very excited to see India catch the Jam fever - and then to see such excellent Jams in India! India has some of the planet's biggest and best Jams. There is a fantastic energy, drive and spirit of sharing which embodies the very best of the Jam way.

Bangalore exploded onto the Jam scene and took a place in the front row. It is certainly among those genuinely world class Jams where we see great results, great productivity and professionalism - while people are having a great time. Bangalore has a global reputation as a city with energy, skills and a forward-looking attitude.  We also experience our Bangalore contacts as remarkably open and cooperative. We are very excited that we will be able to visit, to see the city and Bangalore Jam for ourselves - and we can't wait to meet the Bangalore Jammers and hosts!   

Thanks to all the people from the Bangalore Jam (Neeraj, Francis, Sunhera, Aditi, Viji) and Thoughtworks (Manish, Gautham, Deepthi) for making this possible. See you in India!

Jam? Yes, you can!

Thinking of hosting a Jam? Yes, we are still accepting locations!

A Jam can be as big or as small as you manage. It can be full-service, or self-orgaining. It can be a whole conference center, or your kitchen table.  All you really need is a space, some people, internet and an open attitude.

We have seen Jams put together in a few hours and - while that style is not for everyone - they rocked! So, if you're still hesistating, just get in touch. We'll help you to Jam the World!

Why should I Jam?

Why is it worthwhile giving up a weekend to Jam? This video from the London site of our sister event, the Global Sustainability Jam, says it all.  Thanks to Joshua Lee, the filmmaker.

(UPDATE: We have even more locations now, including many countries who are Jamming for the first time. Take a look!)

What an amazing start!
On this day last year, we were looking forward to an amazing GSJ12, and were happy to have 21 sites already signed up.
One year later, with GSJ13 still two months away, we already have sixty eight sites online. It's amazing to see old friends coming back, and to see cities and even countries jamming for the first time!
GSJ12 eventually ran with 85 locations taking part. I wonder how many we will have for GSJ13? :)

Sister Jam a Huge Success

The second edition of our sister event was a great suceess. The Global Sustainability Jam in November 2012 brought together Jammers in around 60 cities worldwide to Jam for 48 hours on the subject of sustainaibility. The Secret Theme for this year was ((HEART))BEATS.
