Web414 has always been about its community, and I wish I was able to personally thank each and every one of you who contribute to her. I was very worried going into tonight's show that the Web414 I know and love wasn't going to be able to transcend the temporary loss of our venue partner. I need not have been concerned.
Web414 is where Web414 is. Thank you for being part of it. This is going to be an exciting month for Web414. Barcamp is less than a month off, and we may even have some exciting news in the coming weeks about Web414's future.
Until then, we'll see you guys at Barcamp.
How much does it cost to go to a conference? If it's out of town, you've got travel and lodging expense, and the cost of the conference itself. Chances are it's a few hundred dollars at least.
But wait! Did you know that BarCampMilwaukee is technology conference (or "un-conference") right here in Milwaukee?
We've held three BarCamps here in Milwaukee since 2006, and we're doing it again, as BarCampMilwaukee4 is happening Oct 3rd and 4th, 2009 at the Chase Commerce Center, right here in Milwaukee.
Cost to attend this conference? Just your participation. No money. Free. All you have to do is show up, and take part. Be an active participant in the conference. Share what you know, help out others. Teach and learn.
Sounds like a deal, right? One thing... We can only make this possible through sponsorship donations. That's where you come in.
For a standard conference, your company may spend hundreds of dollars just to get you there, but with BarCampMilwaukee4, your company can sponsor the event, and send as many people as it wants.
Sending your people is free (as long as they participate) and we're looking for sponsors to donate about $200. That's not much in the grand scheme of things.
We know budgets are down, and times are tough, but we're passionate about putting on a great participatory-conference right here in Milwaukee.
(Not sure what a BarCamp is? Ask Wikipedia!)
You can design the next BarCampMilwaukee T-shirt. And you should. Or I will. And I like unicorns and fairies on my t-shirts.
There are a couple of catches though:
Submit your high resolution 1-color artwork By SEPTEMBER 15 to email@example.com.
The web414 card has been sent to the printers at overnightprints.com; the delivery time with standard shipping is about 7 to 10 days..
Hey, in case you guys ever want to buy a Drobo, you might think about buying one using these links. If you do, your good friends at Web414 get a cut of sale, which benefits all of us, right? We can have a year-end party, or sponsor BarCampMilwaukee4, or something.
Have any of our Web414 Brothers or Sisters used a Drobo? What has your experience been? Would you like to talk about it at an upcoming meeting? DataRobotics, would you?
This is a clip from the July 9, 2009 Web414 Meeting. From the upcoming album "Lamb," Pezzettino performs "You never know."
If you're wondering what all the Pezzettino is about, you can watch the whole segment.
With that, the whole first hour of the July 9th Web414 can be watched in parts via the Web414 Blip.TV channel.
We're working on getting a better system in place for making the shows a little more watchable. Anyone with a spare Tricaster is welcome to bring it by the next meeting. We'd even invite you to the couch to show us how to run it. Until then, we hope you're happy to get these shows published for you. I think they're a step up from the UStream recordings, and I hope they're more watchable. They are a blast to produce, anyway.
It's the Welcome and Monologue from the July 9, 2009 Web414 Show.
What a great show last night. Once again, we showed how it's really about the guests and audience. Huge thanks to everyone who shared the love during the Show and Tell segment, and a special shout-out to Pezzettino, for being the Web414 Show's first ever musical guest. Listen to and buy the albums! Take the Parasite Video Challenge.
Html5 discussion from Web414 June 11, 2009 by Arlen Walker. 55 minutes of good stuff. I neglected to record the main camera angle for this talk, so all you got is the cutaway camera. We are a professional operation, ehy?
