TEDxManitoba 2012 Technical Report

I’ve been quite busy over the past few weeks wrangling all the technical aspects of TEDxManitoba 2012, which took place this past February 9th. Being a part of the steering committee for the event was an incredible experience, as was working with my crew in my position as technical lead. I was also fortunate to make a number of new connections and friends through the experience — as well as, of course, hearing some fantastic ideas worth spreading. After the event went so well, I wanted to write up a quick overview of how we pulled off the day’s technical aspects so I could give credit where credit is due. (Lost? Read up on TEDx Events.)

A Wee Bit of Fanfare

TheWritersCollective.org Last night I was at Aqua Books for the official launch of the new website for The Writers Collective of Manitoba, pictured in the tiny thumbnail. Last night I projected some much larger screenshots of it onto a large screen while I droned on about all it could do. Then Eve turned on the “Applause” sign. Not long after that, we ate cookies and drank hot chocolate and punch and beer and wine. But not all of them, and not all at once. My point in mentioning it is that I developed the site for the Collective in the course of my work under the name of WebRiggers.net. I think the site will work out swimmingly for them.
