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....

    Chris Anderson talks the game but doesn't do the deal - his book should be on the internet, free, perhaps with some ads on the pages to pay for it.

    Uh, Chris has announced he's going to do exactly that.

    WH... wrong again.

    I've finally realized that WH isn't a troll. He's pure satire.

    He's against copyright infringement... but he runs a scraper blog.

    He's against trademark infringement... but he uses the name of a trademarked character.

    He's against blogs that get things wrong... but he tends to get at least one thing 100% wrong in every comment.

    He's against Chris Anderson charging for a scarce book, missing that everyone says you can charge for scarcities... and forgets the fact that Chris has said FOR OVER A YEAR, both on his blog and in interviews that there will be a free version of the book.

    He accuses me of speaking at an anti-RIAA event, not realizing the RIAA was the major sponsor of the event.

    He mocks people who are anonymous, but has yet to reveal his real name.

    He insults people regularly, and when people insult him, he whines about how I ought to delete those posts.

    Guys... he's pure comedic satire gold.

    Enjoy him for what he's worth.
