How to Kick Ass at Your Job - Slides from Ignite Orlando #2

Wed, 06/24/2009 - 18:29 -- rprice

Before you get too far into your creative endeavor, stop and think about why you got into this in the first place. Creating a Mission statement can tell you why, but should not tell you how, when or how much, but a Vision statement can. Arnold, Cyrano and Kermit can help too.

BlogOrlando >>> WordCampOrlando, more events = more specialization = more awesome

Fri, 06/12/2009 - 05:47 -- rprice

The spring has kept me busy, so I haven't been able to read every blog post on my RSS reader. However, the recent announcements around WordCampOrlando made me wonder what Josh had to say about it.

Fringe Fringe Fringe Fringe Fringe Fringe Fringe

Yes, it's true. I can never shut up about the Orlando Fringe. Fringe is what BarCamp will be in 50 years, becuase they have the same humble beginnings. Actually, if you take Internet Years into account, we are more like 3 or 5 years away from having unconferences that last 2 weeks and appeal to a wide audience. (I know because I want to create one)

Blunder Bungle (today) an art show inspired by mistakes

Tue, 05/05/2009 - 20:11 -- rprice

I will be doing an (as of yet untitled) digital puppetry / collaborative performance piece tonight as a part of a backyard art showcase. The blunder for me, is that it's 18 hours until the event and I don't have a playable demo! Built with Processing and a Nintendo WiiMote. Come and see what the fuss is all about.

Coming of Age as a Community

Mon, 04/20/2009 - 10:50 -- rprice

4 years ago, I had just been away from "home" for a year, having just graduated with my Digital Media degree, ready to go out and cause some riots -- but I had no employable skills, no professional network, and very little job experience. Moving away from my comfort zone was difficult, and I decided to move back within 50 miles of where I grew up.

BarCamp people can Learn from Dead Chickens

Mon, 04/13/2009 - 07:34 -- rprice

While I was at DrupalCon DC I went to a session about how to give a presentation. Emma Jane Hogbin had a slide where she was talking about different presentation styles, and she brought up "Selena talks dead chickens". With some creative googling, I discovered that the presentation was from Ignite Portland, and that someone had videotaped it.
