The Talk 20 (Pecha Kucha) discussion and presentations at Artcite tonight were unreal.
Jodi Green is responsible for having held this, and I’m extremely grateful that she bothered to ask me to participate.
How awesome was it? Well, I knew it was going to be so stellar (I was so confident, in fact) so I brought my Flip video camera and videotaped it.
Here are ALL six of the 6-minute-and-forty-second presentations.
If you weren’t there, you can learn about what went on and who is behind some of the exciting things happening in the city. Also, if you weren’t there, you missed the opportunity to meet WAY MORE active people than I that were in the crowd. That is the magic benefit that’s valuable as heck when you ATTEND something like this.
Look for more of these talks, and for more great projects driving Windsor into new times.
SO FANTASTIC! The speeches say it all. Really.
