My Keynote At Mesh: Growing Communities And Adding True Scarcities

from the have-fun-with-it dept

A bunch of folks have been asking for video from my keynote talk at the excellent Mesh Conference, and here it is (and if you really want to download it, there's an iTunes link as well). It's also embedded below if you click through. The whole thing is an hour, but split into four separate videos. The first two are my presentation and the second two are the Q&A that followed:

It was, as always, lots of fun to do. Also, I met tons of great, wonderful, interesting and fascinating people at the event. Interacting with people is always the best part of these things. Thanks to everyone who came out -- and a special thanks to the Mesh Crew: Mathew, Rob, Michael, Stuart and Mark who have created something really special with the Mesh event and who are each amazing individuals as well.

Also, since people were quizzing me about it later: I actually do "memorize" the presentations and what's coming next. I don't see what the next slide is before I bring it up and no (as two separate people asked me...) I did not have a little device in my ear telling me what was coming next....

    Re: Re: Re:

    As ever, you need to remember where you are. You're not reading the product of a newsroom where journalists check each source and try to be fair, neutral and balanced. You're reading a blog, which by its very definition is opinionated and reliant on 3rd party information - which may be inaccurate when first reported.

    Mike made a post which - if Engle had been telling the truth - would have been absolutely correct and justified. Once further information came to light, he made another post clarifying the truth and admitting that the first post did not tell the whole story (though how much of it is untrue seems to remain in question). The central point is not invalidated, only the case in question. True, the original post was inflammatory, but it's a blog.

    So, apart from that one example, do you have anything else you find objectionable? As usual, you've made some vague allusions to problems with the presentation but haven't bothered giving specific examples of what you're referring to.
