A quick and fairly good introduction is on wikipedia:

Correct.  There are various Potluck dinners and discussion groups.  Also
there have been poly relationships in the broader Extropian and
transhumanist community.  In addition for several years there has beem a
Burning Man theme camp named Poly Paradise.  You do not necessary need
to be in a poly relationship to camp there however you must at least
have an understanding of and be accepting of polyamory.  For anyone
planning to be at this year's Burning Man I plan to be camping with Poly
Paradise so if you are also at Burning Man stop by and say hello.

And while I am sure that the following points are obvious to everyone I
will mention them just in case:
-Polyamory does not require that some, any or all share living quarters.
They may or they may not.
-There are no necessary sexual preference or gender roles templates in
