DemoCamp Toronto was fun as always, demos from Attachments.me (and I should mention that Jesse and Benjamin are both U of Guelph grads), Rocketr, Kipu, Trendspottr and (my personal favourite) TubeMote (Control the video playing on a specific URL). I can’t enter the Battle of The Apps (I graduated too long ago), but I’ll be watching the results. And a shout out goes to Bryan of WineAlign, who I promise I will get back to soon.
This week, I’ll be heading to the inaugural DemoCamp Hamilton on Wednesday evening, and during the day I’ll swing by Creative Thinking Hacks with Scott Berkun. I’m super excited about that, @berkun’s been in my RSS feed reader some time now and he’s a big booster of the movement to end boring presentations.
Thursday is TEDxWaterloo, I went last year but this year I may only make it to the after party.
Oh, and I want to leave on a selfish plug. Do you have a favourite looping GIF? try visiting http://www.lasernarwhal.com/bonus?[URL of GIF], examples include poodles and walking stick men.
Tuesday’s Communitech meet and greet in Kitchener, convinced me to keep coming — the food was great Thanks to Greg from Innosphere for saving me from trying to understand the art. And always good to see Eric and Scott from Data Perceptions — Fun fact: Eric gave me my very first job (my memory is vague, I think we were upgrading legacy punchcards to work with the ENIAC machine to break the Enigma cipher). Also a shout out to Harrison of eCruncher
Thursday’s Guelph Technology Peer to Peer with Gabrielle from Tree Haus and Brydon from brainpark saw me asking too many questions (I love alternative office solutions). Shout outs to Arni of Northern Village and Candace of Synn Studios as always, and to Al from Integrated Explorations who scuba dives for good instead of evil (as is my intent).
