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....

    Paul, as I mentioned in another thread opinion + opinion... what would happen is that in the future, Mike would link to his own posts as reference for a new post, all the while with the unsubstantiated stuff being used to build a bigger pile to put the latest gift from on high on. Yet, at the end of it all, most of it traces back to supposition, other blogs(!), and quotes taken out of context (even godly Trent Reznor was "chop quoted" to change the meaning of his words in one post).

    So it's a little like untangling a ball of yarn. Just look at each post, and go and read the 4 or 5 items linked, and read their 4 or 5 items linked, and so on, until you get to the bottom and realize that it's all supposition, with very few reliable external sources to support it.
