Thanks to Philip Bast, we now have a video record of the 16 talks given at our first IgniteWaterloo event. Have a look at our spiffy new Vimeo site and dig into the videos. The talks are every bit as engaging and edifying on video as they were that night at the Children’s museum. And get this — the videos are collected together into an album!
Videographer Philip Bast was on hand for Ignite Waterloo’s inaugural event. Graciously donating his time, Philip captured the evenings presentations and is working on compiling them for us. Here’s the first of his video snapshots, also featured on The Record.com Video Reports under Geek Culture.
Some of the Ignite organizers got together for a lunch meeting today to talk about the first event last week and to begin planning for the second event, tentatively set for March 2010. The general feeling is that, minor glitches aside, the first event worked quite well.
But others may have a different take.
Were you at our first event? If so, what did you think? What did you like? What might you want to see done differently? Please let us know by leaving a comment for this post.
