Web414 Show: The Year In Review Show

Relive the magic, or watch for the first time, as we hold our first official meeting in the maybe new Bucketworks. Marvel as we talk about meetings we've already had and reminiscing we've done already.

Oh, and this one has _a lot_ of swearing.

First Half of the Nov. 12, 2009 Show.

Embedded here for your viewing pleasure is The Web414 Show from Nov. 12, 2009.

This is the beginning of the show and covers discussion about MilwaukeeDevHouse4, LaLa.com and the perils of sticky tab keys. The "What do you make" segment has been extracted and given a life of its own, and the illegal public performance of copy-written work has been redacted by the thought police.


What do you make? (From Nov. 12, 2009)

One of my favorite segments of each and every Web414 show is the introductions. We try to mix it up a little bit each week and ask our studio audience to tell us something about themselves along with their name and contact info.

On Nov. 12, 2009, we asked people to tell us what they make. They shared. You guys make some cool things. This epsiode of the Web414 show is dedicated to the makers who make. We love you, makers! You make us proud.

December 2009 Web414 MeetingThursday, December 10th, 2009 — 7pm

Topic: The Year in Review
Tour of the new Bucketworks
And More!

Join us for a very special Web414. We'll be meeting at what we believe to be the new home of Bucketworks. I'd ask you to come help us kick the tires, but it's not a car, it's a building, so come help us kick the walls... wait, no don't kick the walls, just come experience what will definitely be the last Web414 of 2009, featuring not only "The Year in Review" but also a special stand-up act. (Also, feel free to bring your own chair if you like to sit down.)

(I've been told by Bucketworks that there may be indoor parking, but if not, fear not, as there is street parking, and it's free after 6pm.)

Web414 Rides Again!

Web414 November 2009

We were happy to be back at the Chase Commerce Center (the location of BarCampMilwaukee4) for the November 2009 Web414 Meeting...

There was a great discussion about how you run your business (be it small business or freelancing) and how to deal with clients, getting paid, insurance (or lack of) and lot's of other things. This is always a hot topic, and one we're sure to revisit in the future.

Where will we be next month? Who knows? The ongoing TBD venue question is always exciting, no?

MilwaukeeDevHouse4Saturday, November 7th, 2009 — 7pm

MilwaukeeDevHouse is Wisconsin's premier hackathon event that combines serious and not-so-serious productivity with a fun and exciting party atmosphere.

If you’re a coder, designer, or just someone who enjoys software and technology development, MilwaukeeDevHouse was made for you...

MilwaukeeDevHouse is intended for passionate and creative technical people that want to have some fun, learn new things, and meet new people.

MilwaukeeDevHouse4 is sponsored by Bucketworks and Insomniac Development LLC, which means they'lll be providing food and drinks, but you can still feel free to bring something along if you wish.

Web414 Show for October 8, 2009: Post Office Fail!

If any @Web414ers out there have a connection within the United States Post Office, can you please have them look around and see if they've seen a MiniDV tape? It's small, black and has a label on it that says "BarCamp." Pete tried to send it to me in an envelope, but I guess the post office finds envelopes confusing and overwhelming these days. Pete informs me that he used at least 1/3 more envelope to mail me the tape than I received. I don't mind if the US Post office keeps the rest of the envelope. I just would kind of like the tape back.


The funny* thing is, it doesn't have any BarCamp footage on it. It has the first hour of Oct. 8th's Web414 meeting on it, including our Web414 Ideas session, and my interview with the faboo Amy Kant.

The only saving grace is that you can still watch parts of the show on the ustreams. Where the lighting is bad, the sound is worse, and all the jokes are below average.

*Not Ha-Ha funny. More like "Oh, this is unbearably sad" funny. Like at a funeral for a good friend.

Barcamp Talk: Web414 Hour 2: Oct. 8, 2009

Hey! Look! It's the formatted for iPhone version of the Web414 show from Oct. 8th, 2009. This 45 minute wonder is a post-unconference discussion about BarCampMilwaukee4. Watch and be amazed at a group of grownups reminiscing about something they did six days earlier.

However, if you're wondering what kinds of things happen at a BarcampMilwaukee event, this is probably pretty good content.

As always, much love to our temporary venue friends: C2 Graphics Productivity Solutions. C2 Graphics Productivity Solutions is one of Milwaukee's finest creativity centers, featuring training, talent placement, and OUPS. Put some in your brain.

Also, note the #GabeFail. I posted this episode to my personal Blip.tv account. I'll fix it later, but I didn't want to make you all wait to see this riveting content any longer than you've already done did.

Watch this site for announcements about great awesomeness planned for November in the Web414 space!

Everyone Loves a Good Show

We love it when you come to Web414, we really do, but we know you can't always make it, heck sometimes we can't make it, but we try...

You probably know we have what we like to call a "Staff Photographer" in John December, and we thank him for his efforts, but hey, we welcome anyone to come and take photos, and share them with the world under an open license. It's all good...

While photos are a great way to document the show/event/meeting, whatever it is - we also love to broadcast it live to the world, and that's where you come in. You've probably seen that Gabe and I set up cameras and record the show, and we usually try to stream it as well, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, so we're looking for people to help with these tasks. Do you want to be in charge of a video camera? Moving it around, pointing it at things? Do you want to stream it live from your laptop so someone (besides Gabe!) can keep an eye on it? Do you want to follow the IRC channel for people not there, in case they have questions/comments? Do you want to bring some mics and give us actual audio for the stream watchers to hear?

We'd love for people to help out with these things... just show up, and let us know what you want to do, and we'll try to accommodate you, and thank you, and love you.

So... what can you do for Web414?
