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....

    Ha! The only nerve you've hit is my funny bone. I mean, seriously. This sorta stuff is comedic gold:

    As for Chris's book, I don't want a "free version", I want the whole book, free, period. Why is he selling it at all? His book isn't any more scarce than a song - digitize it and trade it and there you go. Please don't contradict yourself and declare certain things scarce just because they don't fit your world view plan.

    I mean no human being who's read this site for more than 3 minutes could be confused into thinking that what you write is what we support. It's such pure, beautiful satire. Keep it up.
