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....

    I don't have a problem with that. A bunch of people talking about stuff is how plenty of things get done.

    I guess I am objecting mostly because the presentation is given as pretty much a fait accomplis, a done deal, or worse, an inevitable as the melting of the snow in the spring. We aren't anywhere near that yet, and once you pull away the few poster children the Mike always goes back to (NIN, Radiohead, Corey Smith, and I guess we can add in Jill Sobule), there really isn't that much "movement".

    As a side note, not really related, yet it is: Why is Chris Anderson's book "Free!" not going to be free? In fact, it's cover price is $26.99. Doesn't that seem a little odd? Shouldn't it be free, and then Chris could go on tour and give lectures, charging $100 a head to get in? Isn't that how this is all suppose to work? Wait, it's only suppose to work like that for OTHER people... I get it!
